Rumley is an unincorporated community in Lampasas County, Texas, United States.[1] The area was first settled in the 1870s by ranchers.[2] While the origin of the name is not known for certain, it is thought to be named after the brand of a threshing machine brought into the town by two early settlers.[2]
