Dameron-Damron Family Association
An unofficial site relating to the Dameron-Damron Family Association
Maintained by Charles C. Chaney
An organization studying the genealogy of the Dameron and Damron family of the United States of America
The Dameron-Damron Family Association (DDFA) was founded in 1981 for the purpose of researching the history and ancestry of the family as well as disbursing information through a family newsletter. 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.
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: Bartholomew, George, Thomas, Lawrence, Dorothy
(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.)
If you have Dameron or Damron related information please contribute to the Dameron-Damron Family Newsletter for possible inclusion, submissions can be made to the Association. Family stories, ancestors' photographs, obituaries, documents, etc are welcome. Generally, it is preferred that information be pre-1935 or so.
