Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England, 1620-33
EDWARD BUMPAS

ORIGIN: Unknown
MIGRATION: 1621 in Fortune
FIRST RESIDENCE: Plymouth
REMOVES: Duxbury, Marshfield by 1643
FREEMAN: Oath of fidelity, Duxbury, 1639 .
EDUCATION: Made his mark to report of coroner's jury, 14 February 1654/5.
OFFICES: Coroner's jury, 14 February 1654/5 .
   In Marshfield section of 1643 Plymouth list of men able to bear arms .
ESTATE: In the 1623 Plymouth land division "Edward Bompass" received one acre as a passenger on the Fortune. In the 1627 Plymouth cattle division "Edward Bumpasse" was the twelfth person in the second company .
   Edward Bumpas was in the list of Purchasers , and on 3 June 1662 he was one of those permitted to "look out accommodations of land, as being the first born children of this government" 
   On 26 March 1628 "Edward Bompass and Moses Simonson sold each of them an acre of ground, to Robart Hicks lying on the north side of the town". (This was the acre granted to each of these men in 1623.)
   Assessed 9s. in the Plymouth tax lists of 25 March 1633 and 27 March 1634.
   On 1 July 1633 Myles Standish was to "mow the ends of the grounds belonging to Edward Bumpasse & Will[iam] Latham". In early 1635 Edward Bumpas sold to John Washburn "his house & palisado, standing [on] his late lot of ground which he had by William Palm~er's, beyond the creek called the Eagles-Nest, which lot he gave up to the company, for a lot of ground allowed him in another place by the Governor then being; and the said lot ([on] which this house standeth) was, by the consent of the Governor & Assistants given to the said John Washborne" .
   On 16 September 1645 Morris Truant and Solomon Lenner of Duxbury exchanged land, Truant receiving "the house, upland and meadows" which Solomon Lenner "lately bought of Edward Bumpas" .
   On 15 July 1653 "Edmond Chandeler of Duxburrow" exchanged land with Edward Bumpas of Marshfield, Chandler relinquishing all his rights to lands or meadows in "Duxburrow New Plantation commonly called and known by the Indian names of Satuckquett and Nunckatatesett and places adjacent" in return for the rights of Bumpas as "one of the thirty-four purchasers who are to have their proportions of land at the places commonly called and known by the Indian names of Cushenett and Coaksett and places adjacent" [MD 2:245-46, citing PCLR 2:1:53]. On 30 March 1655 Edward Bumpas of Marshfield (with the consent of Hannah his wife) sold to "Edmond Chandeler of Duxburrow ... all his land lying at Ducke Hill lying between the lands of John Rouse and the lands of the said Edmond Chandeler" .
BIRTH: By about 1605 based on estimated date of marriage.
DEATH: Marshfield between 4 July 1679 and 5 March 1683/4 .
MARRIAGE: By 1631 Hannah ____; she died at Marshfield 12 February 1693.
CHILDREN (first eight recorded Marshfield:
       i   SARAH, b. 9 March 1631[/2]; m. Marshfield 31 March 1659 Thomas Durram

       ii   ELIZABETH, b. 9 March 1633[/4]; m. Marshfield 6 June 1653 ("first Monday in June") Joseph Rose

       iii   JOHN, b. 2 June 1636; m. by 1671 Sarah _____ (eldest child bp. Scituate 20 August 1671).

       iv   EDWARD, b. 15 April 1638; d. Marshfield 3 April 1693, unmarried

       v   JOSEPH, b. 15 February 1639[/40]; m. by 1669 Wybra Glass (eldest child b. Plymouth 2 August 1669), daughter of James and Mary (Pontus) Glass. (This identity for the wife of Joseph Bumpas seems to be based solely on the rarity of the given name of the bride.)

       vi   ISAAC, b. 31 March 1642; no further record.

       vii   JACOB, b. Marshfield 25 March 1644; m. Scituate 24 January 1676/7 Elizabeth (Banks) Whitmer, daughter of Richard Banks and widow of William Whitmer.

       viii   HANNAH, b. Marshfield 3 April 1646; d. after 4 March 1672/3, when she was described as "a distracted person"; apparently unmarried

       ix   PHILIP, b. Marshfield say 1648; m. by 1686 Sarah Eaton .

       x   THOMAS, b. Marshfield say 1650; m. Barnstable in November 1679 Phebe Lovel .

       xi   MARY, b. Marshfield say 1652; m. Marshfield 2 January 1682 Daniel Crocker .

       xii   SAMUEL, b. Marshfield say 1654; served in King Philip's War and slain at Pawtucket 26 March 1676.

ASSOCIATIONS: In the land division of 1623, and in the tax lists of 1633 and 1634, EDWARD BUMPAS is adjacent to PHILIP DELANO. The two men at a later date held adjacent land. The last three sons of Bumpas were Philip, Thomas and Samuel, names also used by Delano. These items suggest that Edward Bumpas came from Leiden with Delano in 1621, and that the two may have had some association there before that date.
COMMENTS: Of the twelve children of Edward Bumpas, the births of the first eight were recorded together in Marshfield, and the births of the last four were not recorded. Since Bumpas lived first in Plymouth, then in Duxbury, and by 1643 in Marshfield, we cannot tell in which town any of the first six were born, but the last six are here assumed to be born at Marshfield.
   On 7 March 1642/3 Plymouth court decreed the "northerly bounds of Marshfield," which included the proviso that the line "take in Edward Bumpass lands". It may be that Bumpas did not move from Duxbury to Marshfield, but merely had the town line redrawn around his property. When the line was drawn again on 23 February 1683, part of the description of the boundary was that it ran "on a straight line to the southwest side of Edward Bumpp's land, so called, where he formerly lived, at Duck Hill, taking in the said land sometimes the said Edward Bumppase's to the township of Marshfield"
   Edward Bumpas was sued for debt by Joseph Tilden on 4 October 1664 and 3 October 1665, but Tilden did not collect . As he did not have any recorded land transactions after 1655, and his estate was not entered for probate, Edward Bumpas clearly spent the later years of his life on the lower end of the economic scale.
BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: The best treatment of the first few generations of the family of Edward Bumpas is that published by Florence Barclay in 1967. She abstracts a number of documents which are crucial to the chronology of the immigrant, his wife and children, and the specific pages for those items are often cited above; at these locations more detailed discussion may be found than is possible here.
   Bompass, Bumpas, Bump, Bumpus and Allied Families, 1621-1981, revised edition (Baltimore 1985), compiled by Carle Franklin Bumpus, is less successful, but does provide information on later generations .

____________________________________________________________________
The name Bompasse is probably of French origin, possibly Hugenot. The old Norman and French name Bonpas, literally translated, Goodstep, is an aristrocratic name in Europe. The Bonpas family originated in Perpignam in the extreme south western portion of France near the Mediterranean. The name probably came to England with Normans, and perhaps again with the Hugenots. Bumpus also exists as a name derived from Boneboz in Normandy, a fief held from the Earls of Mellent.

Tradition states that in January 1240, in the wars of Raymond VII, Count of Toulous, a youth was handed a very important dispatch to convey from one commander to another. To deliver this, it became necessary that he pass through the enemy lines. It was a difficult and delicate errand, demanding not courage alone, but also astuteness and tact. When at length he dashed into camp and laid the dispatch at the feet of his commander, the General clapped his hands and shouted, "Bon pas!" "Bon pas!" (Well done!). His comrades caught up the expression and shouted back, "Bon pas!" "Bon pas!". So, on that day he received a new name, a title of honor conferred for valiant services rendered. The name clung to him until he became known as Bon Pas, and was the father of the family Bon Pas. In France the name is sometimes spelled as pronounced, Bon Par. The name was Anglicised, the two words composing it run into one and it became Bonpas, Bompas, Bumpas, Bumpas, Bompass. In New Enland records of Edward and his family it is written as Bonpas, Bompas, Bompasse, Bumpasse and Bumpas.
