A GUIDE TO TOMES PEDIGREES

            How many TOMESs are there and how many TOMES families are there in the world?  Impossible questions to answer.  Ours may not be a very usual name but as research continues, not only are more families discovered but others, thought to be unconnected, are found to be connected.  A particular problem is that until the spreading of literacy in the Western world in the early 1800s, surnames were often spelt in a variety of ways (eg such as THOMES, TOMBES, TOMBS, TOMES, TOMS, TOOMBS, TOOMES etc in our case) and not all of these eventually settled down with our TOMES spelling.  In addition, in at least two present day TOMES families there are branches which use another spelling.

            The listing below those shows those TOMES families that have now been fully identified and that are given a 5 letter code for identification.  This code being formed from the country/place of origin.

            The columns are:

a.  Code.  The given 5 letter code

b.  Country.  Of origin and/or of the greater part of the Pedigree

c.  Date.  The earliest year in the Pedigree.  A ‘c’ with the year indicates ‘about’ that year.

d.  Origins.  The place(s) of origin.

e.  Edn.  The latest Edition number and date of the last published Edition of the Pedigree. [Note:  Although the last full revise (ie Edn) may have been issued some years ago, in most pedigrees later research has now identified more details and names.  New full updates though take more and more time to produce as their sizes increase, but should be in due course of time].

f.  Names.  The number of TOMES names (and those with variant spellings of this name) in the Pedigree (first figure) and of other names (2nd figure). [Note: See  also Note above re new numbers found.  These though are included in the figures in this column].

g.  Comments.  Comments such as branches in other countries or items of particular note.
