Spelling variations of this family name include: Plouman, Plowman, Ploughman, Ploman, Plewman, Plemons, Plimon, Pleuman, Plemmons and many more.

First found in Westmorland, where the Plemmons family was anciently seated as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066; the language of the courts was French for the next three centuries, and the Norman ambience prevailed. In spite of this, many surnames of Anglo-Saxon origin survived, and the family name Plemmons was first referenced in the year 1223, when Robert Plouman held estates in the northern county of Westmorland.
