Lummus/Loomis connections

I would like to invite you to join us at the Loomis Genforum site. The Loomis ancestry has been well documented in a book entitled "The Loomis Family in America" which was published in 1908 by Elisha Loomis. The book traces the descendants of Joseph Loomis who left Braintree in Essex England in 1638 and come to America and homesteaded in Windsor CT.

There is some information in the book regarding his ancestors in England. The Book was reprinted in 1982 and helped to reignite interest in the Loomis line.

The Loomis family while in England developed several different spellings of the surname and even some of the descendants here in America of Joseph tended to alter the spelling of the last name as well.

It is my belief that if your ancestry points back to England, we are most likely related. Joseph Loomis was in the textile trade and it appears that many with a Loomis or dirivetive name tends to be of the same profession as well in England.

We are currently in the process of updating the 1908 Loomis book and would like to expand our knowledge of related families that are not direct descendants of Joseph.

Please feel free to e-mail us at and visit our web site at This web site is just becoming a reality and is far from a finished product.

Thank you for your interest in this posting.
Lance D. Loomis
