The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Allmand came from the Old English personal name ∆thelmund. This name is composed of two elements: ∆thel, which means noble, and mund, which means protection. However, the surname Allmand may also derive from the Old French word aleman, which means German.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Allmand or a variant listed above: Awdry Almond who settled in New England in 1635; Joseph Almond settled in Virginia in 1670; Susan Almond settled in Jamaica in 1661; William Almond settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1827.
