Loram History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , Scottish


The name Loram originates in Normandy where records show Henricus Loherene was listed there in 1180. It is derived from the Old French "le Lohereng," meaning "the man from Lorraine." Other records show the fief of Lauraine, Normady 1180-95.


Early Origins of the Loram family


The surname Loram was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where Albert de Loraine (Lothariensis) was listed as a Baron in this county and Hereford in 1086. Roger Loering was later listed in Bedfordshire in 1165. Geoffrey le Lohareng was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1158-59 and Dauit le Loreng was listed in the Feet of Fines of Norfolk in 1197.

A few years later, Thomas Loring was listed in the Assize Rolls of Somerset in 1280. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 revealed more listings of the name: Peter de Loring in Bedfordshire; and John le Loring in Oxfordshire. Kirby's Quest, another census a the time of King Edward III (1312 -1377) listed Alice Loring and Emma Loring both in Somerset. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Loram Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Loram has been recorded under many different variations, including Loring, Loreing, Lorring, Lorin, Lorrin and others.

Migration of the Loram family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Lorams were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
