ENGLISH ORIGINS OF THE HARMER NAME

There are three distinct different groups of Harmers in England, one in Norfolk, one in Gloucestershire and one in Sussex, however descendants of these families have migrated to all corners of the United Kingdom and many parts of the world. Currently HFA can find no connection between the Norfolk and Gloucestershire families, but DNA has established that the Sussex family is a quite separate family.

ROYAL CONNECTIONS

The Sussex Harmers come close to having tenuous royal connections having links with just about every major noble English family, unfortunately you have to go back to the de Haremeres and forward through Elizabeth Countess of Shrewsbury, ( Bess of Hardwick). So far, no other “royal” connections have been found.
