Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Wormend were recorded, including Wardman, Warman, Wordman and others.

First found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066. It is believed to be descended from Wermund, an ancient Saxon name occurring in the genealogy of the Kings of Mercia.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Wormend family emigrate to North America: Casper Wardman who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1732.
