BAUMER Family History

This unusual name, with variant spellings Bawme and Balm(e), recorded in London Church Registers from the mid 16th Century is of French Huguenot origin. The derivation is from the Provencal (Southern French) "baume" meaning a cave and is therefore topographic for one who lived by a cave. During the late 16th\early 17th Century thousands of French Huguenot refugees entered England to escape religious persecutions in their own country and this is reflected by the sudden appearance of French names in English Church Registers.
