Descendants of Edouad Bompasse, immigrant to the Plymouth Colony in 1621
Edouad Bompasse arrived at Plymouth Colony on 21 November 1621, aboard the ship Fortune, the second ship to arrive at the colony. The name Bompasse is French and he may have been a Huguenot fleeing religious persecution in France. In the colonies he became known as Edward Bumpas. He had 13 children and is the progenitor for many families using the surnames Bump, Bumpas, Bumpass, Bumpers, Bumps, and Bumpus. My line of descent is through his son John Bumpas Sr. to my great-great grandmother, Florence Omega Bumpass, who married Alexander Hill. It is this line of descent that primarily is represented here.
