Hello Carolyn,

In fact, it is probable that many of us may be related, but there are at least three main branches on the trunk of the Mumby family tree.

1. The original Viking named Mund who settled the land granted to him by Halfdan after the conquest of York in 874.

2. The Norman Duke who was awarded the estate by William, Duke of Normandy.

3. The descendents of African slaves who were employed by Valentine Mumby in Jamaica.

I've had only two contacts over the years with individuals who claim the Norman lineage.The rest fall into group 1 & 3 :)
