GOMES Family History

This interesting surname is a patronymic form of Gomme, itself being of Anglo Saxon origin and is an example of many modern surnames that have been created from nicknames or bynames. The name derives from the Old English pre 7th Century "guma" meaning man, or the Middle English "gome" which was applied to someone employed as a servant or companion, a "righthand man". One, Simon Gumme, appears in the Bedfordshire Assize Rolls (1247) and Henry Le Gome is noted in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire (1275).
