About The Home Family
Please sign in to see more.
Welcome to these pages and the Home/Hume family and where we fit in. We're now living in Southern England but our roots are based in Southern Scotland, mainly around Leith and Edinburgh and also Bassendean, Cowdenknowes and of course Hume in the Borders. 

Our branch came south of the Border a couple of hundred years ago.

We spell our surname with an 'o' but pronounce it as a 'u' as in Hume.

The result is that it is always either spelt or pronounced wrongly! We've had every variation repeated back to us over the years. The listener sometimes losing confidence that we said what we said and not quite believing what they heard! Sometimes 'L's are added and 'S's. I've even been called 'House'. So it is hardly surprising that these variations appear 'on the records' over the centuries.

Just four letters causing so much confusion and anguish.

No wonder the philosopher, David Home, changed his name to Hume in 1734.

You are welcome to look through the site, but I'm afraid you'll have to use the link to get a code. I apologise that this seems to be necessary.
Please mention your reason (if you are not a relative) for wanting access. Thanks.
