This family traces its genealogy to the de Gorrams of La Tannière, near Gorram, Maine, on the borders of Brittany (France) where William, son of Ralph de Gorham built a castle in 1128. During the reign of William the Conqueror, several of the name removed to England where many of them became men of learning, wealth, and influence. In America, the name is ancient, and honorable. Although Ralph, who first came to America, did not come with the pilgrims on the Mayflower, the parents and grandparents of his son's wife were passengers on that famous vessel, so that descendants of this line have the blood of four Mayflower passengers as an inheritance.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 250 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of James Gorham
(1550). The most recent event is the death of Paul Desormeaux
(Mar 18 2007).
