England: Anthony Adolph
This book is based on F.G. Groom’s The Grooms of Harefield (Tasmania, Australia, 1985), which was reworked and added to extensively by Yvonne McKissock. Her work was in turn reworked into its present form and amplified by new research in Britain in 2015 by Anthony Adolph, a professional genealogist and broadcaster, author of books including Tracing Your Family History and In Search of our Ancient Ancestors.
The earliest generations of the Groom family were in Stoke Poges, Buckinghamshire, England whose parish records survive from 1564.
