First found in Westmorland, where the Pleuman 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 Pleuman was first referenced in the year 1223, when Robert Plouman held estates in the northern county of Westmorland.
