Humphreys family Book

Of ancient roots, ‘Humphreys’ and its equally popular spelling variations of ‘Humphries’ and ‘Humphrys’ features prominently in the rich drama that is the historical record.
 
From the diverse worlds of the stage, broadcasting, sport, the written word, criminal justice and politics, many have gained fame, acclaim, honours and distinction.
 
In the turbulent sixteenth century, Laurence Humphreys was the English Catholic martyr and saint condemned and executed for High Treason in 1591 and, 340 years later, beatified by Pope Pius X1.
 
 
In American politics, Hubert Humphreys was the Democratic Party politician who served under President Lyndon B. Johnson from 1965 to 1969 as 38th Vice President of the United States, while on the contemporary stage and in the form of ‘Humphries’, Barry Humphries is the Australian entertainer best known for his comic personas of Dame Edna Everage and Sir Les Patterson.
 
The colourful tale of bearers of the name, past and present, is recounted here.
