Excerpt from The Cummings Memorial: A Genealogical History of the Descendants of Isaac Cummings, an Early Settler of Topsfield, Massachusetts

The name, spelled variously, is of common occurrence in Great Britain. It appears early in France, often written Comyns. A Robert Cumine was made Earl of Northum berland in the third year of William, the Conqueror. A William Cumin was Lord Chancellor of Scotland in the time of King David, 1124. John Comyn refused to recog nize the claim of Robert Bruce, and was stabbed by him it the Friar's Church. Roger Comyns was killed by the same hand. Many influential houses in the old country were of this name. It must be left to others to trace the connexions beyond the sea. On this side of the Atlantic there have been settled several lines of families bearing the name, among whom it has not been as yet possible to establish a clear line of kinship.
