Hello all, this is probably not the place to do it but; I emmigrated to NZ in 2008 from the UK, I believe I am the only Goreham in NZ, I too would love to piggyback on some of the research done into our common history!
John, my name is David. I'm an American and with the uncommon nature of this surname, I wonder if you could share some information with me.
Hi Dave, are you still interested in this surname as I have extra info, please email me and we can exchange what we know, cheers John Gorham Perth Western Australia
John and David, I have been working on the Gorham lines and I would love to collaborate with the two of you. John I have been trying to look you up in Perth, and quitefrankly I was delighted to only miss your comment by one month. Hope you find me - Jennifer Gorham Alkire
Hello Jen, nice to see you here. I'd like to collaborate with you on the origin of Gorham. You'll hear from me soon! xo
Not correct!, firstly Gorhambury is an historic house not a village and secondly Geoffrey de Gorham of La Tanniere in France was invited to be the successor Abbot at St Albans, the Gorhams are from this ancestral line. Regards, John Gorham Perth Western Australia
As I understand it 'Goreham' is derived from the descriptive 'Homestead on a triangular piece of land' but if we are truly Anglo-Saxon in origin then the Vikings mangled the meaning of our name.
