I have an ancestor named Bloomer Christian, born Dec., 1838. Since 'Bloomer' is an unusual first name, I suspect he may have been given his mother's or grandmother's maiden name. I'm looking for a link to the Bloomer surname.
Bloomer's mother was Cynthia ??, born abt. 1804, and married to James Christian, born abt. 1811. In 1850 the Christians were living in Greene County, New York. James had been born there, but Cynthia (although born in New York) had moved to Greene County around 1828. James and Cynthia had seven children: George, David, Bloomer, Jeremiah, Electa, Mary Jane and Sophia born between 1835 and 1852.
I'd be most grateful for any information that will help me figure out where Bloomer's name came from. Thanks!!
