Origins of surname

This word is derived from corn, the grain, and hamm, a low lying meadow, and the family name is believed to stem from a lost village in Devon of the same name.

Early records

The first Coram baptism in Jersey was that of Joseph, son of John and Mary, in 1830. It would be another 30 years before a family became established
