An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The history of the name Alliment begins with the Norman Conquest of England in 1066. This Norman name was soon thereafter given to a person or family of German heritage. Further research showed the name was derived from the Anglo-Norman-French word aleman, which means German. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Alliment Early Origins

now known as Fleury-sur-Orne, near Caen in Normandy. There is no clear record of the family arriving in Britain but their voyage is of no doubt.

Alliment Spelling Variations

Alliment 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. Alliment has been recorded under many different variations, including Almayne, Alman, Allman, Almand, Hallman, Allmaine, Almon, Almand, Altman, Allman, Ellman, Dalman and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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. Alliments were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: John Allman who settled in Philadelphia in 1764; Simon Alman in 1709; Stephen Almand in 1749; H. Almand in Norfolk, Virginia, in 1820.
