Trammels was a small farming community in eastern Fort Bend County fourteen miles northeast of Richmond, at the junction of a graded and drained road and State Highway 6. Little is known regarding early settlement. Trammels was served by the mail route from Dewalt. In 1936 the community had a row of dwellings, one business, and some five farm units.
