Hi fellow Palmers! I'm from a line of Palmers from Cardiff, S Wales, going back to the late 1800s, and before that back to the Middle Ages in Wiltshire, mostly the village of Coombe Bissett. I've been researching the family history for several years, but am always happy to learn about new relatives, no matter how distant!
i meant i am from cardiff in south wales jjpalmer i also have many relatives in wales too
i am from cardiff in soth wales and have many relatives in wales
I am a first generation Australian Palmer, with my father's family coming from Wales, UK. I'm interested in finding any Palmer connections in South Wales. Philip, Charles and John are all well-represented in my family through the generations as family names passed from father to son. I have few relatives that I know of, so therefore am really keen to try and trace some more information. We had a 19thC male relative go from Wales to the USA, but died with no heir. Other than that and my direct family in Australia, the remainder would still be in Wales and the UK. Any South Welshmen Palmers??
Hi I was born in Bridgend south wales and have been researching my family tree for a while now. I have recently found out that I descend from the palmer family of south wales my fifth great grandmother was Mary Palmer who was born 1783 in Llanilid, South Wales she married Evan Griffith at Llanilid. She is descended from William Palmer who was from Llanilid also. I have not traced all my Palmer cousins as of yet but it would be brilliant if we were related My email is firstname.lastname@example.org I have managed to trace the palmer family quite extensively and if I can help in anyway let me know I'm more than willing to send you a copy of the family tree for you to look at.
Hi Martin, thanks for your kind offer to share information, it is very appreciated. I will email you and look forward to hopefully filling in some more of the very sparse details I do know. Again, thanks so much. Kindest regards, Jo.
I am from the US. Have you any relatives in the US?

Cheers, Noel.

Hi Kimber, A group of men, known as a "Press Gang," would abduct a man, probably when he had had a little too much to drink and take him back to their British warship, which would have been a square rigger and happened during the 19th century. He would then have to serve on that ship and the press gang would receive a sum for each man pressed. The pressed man may never have seen his loved ones again. You may be lucky in tracing your forebear as the Royal Navy is extremely well documented. If you know his name and about the time he was born and the area he lived your first contact would probably be the Maritime Museum at Greenwich, London. I obtained a photo of my gt grandfather's ship of 1860 from them. There are also the census details which are available up until 1911. Best wishes to all. Clive Palmer
Hi Clive I am descended from James Palmer who came to Australia (Yarraville VIC), from England, in 1857 with his 2 brothers, wife and 2 children. I am trying to trace his father, Simon Palmer, I believe from Middlesex and James' brothers Simon and John's descendants. I believe John never married as it is recorded that he died an old man while living with his brother James in Footscray. Can you help at all, where does your line come in? Retta Palmer Perth WA

One of the most famous families were the Palmers of Long Sutton, in Somerset. They were the people who started the buscuit making and went into partnership with the Huntley's to become "Huntley and Palmer's Bucuits." Long Sutton is just a few miles from South Petherton and Stoke sub Hamdon, where my family originated. The buscuit makers were "Quakers" or "Religious Society of Friends" to give the correct title.I beleive they became "Barons" at some point. There are many Palmers in Somerset and probably many are related in some way but it is difficult to find a link. Incidently the gaves at the Quaker meeting house at Long Sutton contain mainly two families: Palmer and Westlake It is avery interesting place to visit. Best wishes to all.
My maiden name is palmer & im from northern ireland there is still alot of palmers near were i live it is lovely to find out the facts about our name i would never of thought it was french but im interested in finding out more now :)
Craig Palmer. I'm a Palmer and I'm proud of it. I'm nearly 70 living in Yorkshire. My dad was born in 1917 and lived in the Dartmoor area of Devon. My Grandad, William Palmer was born in Bath in about 1885. He was decorated in WW1 with the MC and DCM. I believe from my research that his father was Born in Bradford on Avon. I cant go back any further without spending a lot of money.
Don't we all!!
I have also seen the meaning of the name as a lowly person who is likely to "palm of" something. Meaning to sell you something not up to standard. Also a connection with Palermo. I of course come from the pilgrim faction.

Hello everyone - what a surprise to find Palmer's together. I was born a Palmer in Coventry England. I descend from John Palmer bn c 1790 (not sure where) but he lived and worked in the Long Acre area of Westminster as a cutler. He married a Sophia Biggs of Widcombe Somerset (in Widcombe, Bath) 20 October 1814 - they had quite a brood, all born in the Long Acre area and then dispersed into now the Greater London area, Wales, South Africa - more nomadic tendencies.
My moms name was Palmer and came from Birmingham,found the family moved from Suffolk to Shropshire in 1700's,then her grandfather moved to Wolverhampton in mid 1800's !!!
i just found out that my great great great grandma Iram maiden name was Palmer she married a Mel Anglin and they had a son name Mark Anglin who was born in Hamilton Alabama does anyone know of a Iram Palmer back in late eighteen hundreds? if so contract me at email@example.com
Interesting point, whilst in the military both my dad's and my nickname was 'Pedlar' or 'Peddlar'. I remember seeing an old B&W movie showing a 'gypsy' cart selling pots and pans, the name on the side was 'Palmer', the implication being that the Palmers were travellers, which would follow through from the pilgrimage idea. Also, do a 'google' for 'Pedlar Palmer'
My dad was also peddlar palmer and was ex army ( comes from the boxer i believe)

Another Palmer here, strangely enough living in Bridgwater, Somerset...coincidence though, my hometown is Weymouth, Dorset.
My Great nan's maiden name was Palmer. She lived in Bridgwater, Somerset. She married an American GI whos last name was 'Arnsdorf'. Thats my last name. Anyone heard of it?
Me too guys! my branch moved fromm Suffolk up to Yorkshire in the early 1800's and we've remained here ever since.
