Most of the research for this page was carried out by Richard Dumville, who is a great-great-grandson of William Dumville (1826-1903).

Joseph William Dumville (1890-1964) was known by Richard's father as Uncle Bill. Richard's father recalls that Uncle Bill's wife was called Nelly. Did he marry again or was this a nickname? Florence Dumville (b 1896) was known by Richard's father as Auntie Toss.
