An unofficial site relating to the Dameron-Damron Family Association

Maintained by Charles C. Chaney

An organization exploring the genealogy of the Dameron and Damron family across the United States of America

Most who carry the name, whether spelled "Dameron" or "Damron," descend from Lawrence Dameron who received a land grant in Northumberland County, Virginia, in 1652. Lawrence and his wife, Dorothy, along with their children, were the first documented Damerons to come from England to settle in Virginia. Lawrence (1615-1657) married Dorothy (?) (????-c1691) before 1644.

   Children of Lawrence & Dorothy: Bartholomew, George, Thomas, Lawrence, Dorothy

Descendants of Lawrence and Dorothy Dameron have spread to all corners of the nation.
The association is about all of these descendants.

(Note: Most Dameron-Damron families in the United States descend from Lawrence who apparently came from Suffolk County, England.  There are some Dammerons who came from Germany who appear unconnected.)

The Dameron-Damron Family Association (DDFA) was founded in 1981 by John Preston Dameron and Leonard L. Damron for the purpose of researching the history and ancestry of the family.  A newsletter is published twice a year.  The Dameron-Damron Family Association is a non-profit organization with all dues and income above the cost of publishing and distribution of the Family newsletter going toward family research.  An annual reunion or gathering has been conducted since 1987.


The DDFA gathering for 2016 is tentatively planned to be held at Kilmarnock, Virginia, near Dameron Marsh and the site of Lawrence Dameron's homesite.  Details to be announced.
