Jacki,

Hi! I have no idea but they COULD be related. I don't have much info on my guy before his family came to America, including no info on brothers and sisters and parents. I just have one census indicating he was born at Bucktland Filleigh, Devon, England. (At the time of the census he was a laborer in Wales.) I don't know my English geography well enough to say how close Pedmore is to Devon. I suggest you try to the Bromfield and Broomfield boards at http://genforum.genealogy.com/bromfield/, if you haven't already.

Do you know who Raymund's parents were? Where did he settle? I was surprised to find out that there were a few other Bromfields who settled in Wilkes-Barre. Perhaps he came with one of those families, who I believe are related to me somehow. Do you know anything about his immigration?

Jacki- I found a website that looks like a good match for your guy. Ellis Island records say a Raymond Bromfield came in 1907 age 20. Check out this link and then register for free with Ellisisland.org for more info on him.

Hi Shari:

Thanks for the info..I havent checked the genforum in a long time..it is probably about time to do so...

I do know that Raymund had a brother named Frank, who was a Roman Catholic Priest...my husband tells me that they named a street after him in England)..

Im not too sure about where his family arrived..

Good luck with your research..

I am researching a Fred(e)rick James Bromfield. I have his birth place as Panath, England, born 20 March 1889.

He married a Helen Kern on 8 November 1911 Philadelphia City Hall, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.

He died 12 February 1981 Maple Shade, Burlington County, New Jersey.

That is all I know about Fred. Does this sound like your Fred? Any additional information on Fred and his family would be appreciated.

Hi John,

Frederick James Bromfield is actually son # 2 of Henry aka Harry Bromfield who settled in the US in 1890. He had a son with Helen Kern; Frederick James b.1913. I do not know what happened to the marriage, I have no record of the divorce. But he also married a woman from Wisconsin name Olga E. Johnson around 1930. He lived out his years in Philadelphia (Germantown) with Olga and raised Olga's nephew Jimmy as their own child. If you would like anymore information or pictures feel free to message me...if you are an ancestery.com my page is private but I have no problem sharing.
Shari sweetie... you know where to find me :)

Hello Christopher,
I am sorry to tell you that this is not a connection. My grt grandfather Henry/Harry Bromfield came to the United States with his parents John and Louisa Mifflin, as well as his wife Clara Berry and their two sons George and Fredrick. They came over on the Alaska in 1890 and settled in Wilkes-Barre Pennsylvania. They later had four more children, Mabel, Thomas (who was my granfather, Nellie and Harry. I have alot of records...including headstones to back up my information. I do however have some information on an other who I am quite interested in because I found a picture of him in my collection. His name is Harry Bromfield but he is not my great grandfather nor my great Uncle. I am quite busy at the moment, however I will share it with you at a later date if you would like. As this week will be very busy for me, it may slip my mind. So if you do not hear from me in about a week you can email me @ maggimae1@aol.com or message me on Ancestory.com, just click on my name above. Cheers! Have a great week!
