The Picts of ancient Scotland were the tribe of the ancestors of the Abraman family. The name Abraman is derived from the name Abraham. The name means chief (or father) of a multitude and exalted father.

Abraman Early Origins



The surname Abraman was first found in Balfeth, in Scotland, in 1163, where Adam Abraham, Bishop of Dunblain, held extensive lands. Further south in Lancashire, the township of Abram was home to another branch of the family. "This township was originally called Adburgham, and afterwards Abraham, and gave name to an ancient family of landowners, of whom Gilbert de Abram and John Abraham are mentioned in the reigns of Henry IV. and Henry V. There are some ancient seats, among which is Abram Hall, a moated brick mansion existing since the time of Henry VI." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

These hardy settlers gave their strength and perseverance to the young nations that would become the United States and Canada.
