The BROOMFIELD Surname was registered with the Guild in 1999. My introduction to family history was via my wife's family - her paternal grandmother's line, Medlam, and her Maternal line JONES was too big a hill to climb, although I have traced the line to Birmingham back to the early 1800's. MEDLAM was already registered so I decided to look at my Paternal line BROOMFIELD and the earliest direct line is recorded to the 17th century from the New Forest, Minstead and later Bransgore.
