In Reply to: Switzerland/Britain connection by William Balmer of 464

Hello, William. My last posting on this topic (Origin of the Name Balmer) was ten years ago, and I've refined my notes a bit, so will post them separately in a subsequent, stand-alone message.

In short, I still don't think there's any connection between the U.K. Balmers and the Swiss/Continental Balmers, except that the origin of the surname in both cases is topographical and Celtic in origin.
