Hi, Frank. It's good hearing from you. The origin of the name is fasinating.
You may remember, I'm doing a lot of research into the background on the women who married Lufkin men. And, boy, did they marry well! For example, Thomas Lufkin's (2nd) wife, Sarah Downing was of Downing Street and Downing College, part of Oxford University, fame. Her grand mother was Lucy Winthrop, sister to John Winthrop, the Puritan leader, who founded the City of Boston, MA, USA. And the list of Western European Royal and Noble families these women brought to the American Lufkin line is impressive.
Have a great Holiday Season,
