The Bumpus Surname Project
Eight Bumpus descendants have been tested to determine if four designated lines of Bumpus families descended from a common ancestor. Two from each line were tested:2 descendants of Eduoad Bumpus of Massachusetts2 descendants of Robert Bumpus of North Carolina2 descendants of William Bumpus of Hanover Co. VA2 descendants of William Bumpus of Bedford andCampbell Counties VA and later Wilson County TNAll six descendants of the first 3 groups above matched 12/12. In the fourth group the two descendants of William of TN matched each other 12/12 but did not match the other groups.Concluding that, the first three groups could be descendants of Eduoad Bumpus of MA, or else a common ancestor of Eduoad. The fourth group may descend from the early Edward and Robert Bumpus who came into Virginia by 1670.Any male Bumpus who would like to match up to either of these two haplotypes for the Bumpus family, is welcome to participate in the Bumpus Reconstruc
