The Pumphrey Pedigree (General)

The name Pumphrey is an abreviation of the Welsh ap Humphrey meaning son of Humphry. Ap Humphrey may, indeed, have emigrated from what is now Wales in the dim and distant past, but his ancestry may just as likely lie in the Forest of Dean itself. You have to understand that the Forest of Dean was originally in the "Welsh Marches" i.e, part of Wales. Just a cursery scanning of the posts on this site will demonstrate that many of the surnames remain Welsh to this day.
