No Politics or bad language please
Same in my line Lillian. Cummings and Cummins both used in the late 1700's with one brother using Cummins another Cummings. And the different versions continuing through the 1800's.
A mixture of illiteracy and mistakes by the census people and by the clergy on marriage documents. Many of the early certs wre signed with a cross!
However my lot have managed to keep Cummings since about 1890. We always joked that my Grandad took the g because it sounded posh. His Dad didnt have a g.
