Surnames: Massingham, Messingham, Missingham, Bloom, Bloome, Blowme,
Interested in any occurrences of the surname Massingham and its variants Messingham and Missingham, wherever they occur worldwide and for any dates. The Massingham family originates in North Norfolk (have traced them back to Morston in c. 1500).

Also interested in the Bloom (Bloome, Blowme) family, based in Wells-next-the-Sea, Norfolk for many generations.

Also interested in families who married into these two family trees, including the Harper family.

Very willing to exchange data.

Surnames: Pask
I noticed the surname Pask on your list. Were your Pask's from Norkolk? My gg grandmother was Ruth Pask from neighboring Suffolk. I have not been able to find much information. How much do you know about the Pask family in East Anglia?

Surnames: Bloom, Cook
My great-grandparents,George and Hannah (Cook) Bloom were originally from the Norfolk region,I believe. When they immigrated to America, they did so on a ship called the Muritania. They left behind a daughter named May, who was a toddler at the time.She grew up to marry a man with the last name Hunt. I'm trying to find out more about this particular Bloom family and if there were any siblings or any other pertinant information.

Surnames: Massingham, Paske, Bloom
I come from a small country town in Western Australia. I am currently trying to track family from around the Hereford area in England. My grandmothers maiden name was Paske, but that is not what I am writing to you about. Our local town had an early settler named Massingham and our main street is named after him. I unfortunatly have no other information on him at this point but our community recently celebrated it's centenary and there was a book produced about Kellerberrin and its history. I shall get some more information about this particular man Massingham. He may or may not be of interest to you. I also have worked with a fellow named Chris Bloom. More on that later.

Surnames: Pask,
My gg grandmother Ruth Pask was born in 1883 and lived on Fornham Road, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk. Her mother died when she was young and her father died when she was about 17. She was an only child and was not allowed to inherit any of her father's money since she was a female. She was forced to work cleaning houses. I don't know her parent's names. Her father was a member of the Suffolk Hunt.
