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


It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Allmond was formed. The name was derived from the Old English personal name Ęthelmund. This name is composed of two elements: Ęthel, which means noble, and mund, which means protection. However, the surname Allmond may also derive from the Old French word aleman, which means German.

Allmond Early Origins



The surname Allmond was first found in the counties of Yorkshire and Northumberland, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

Allmond Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Allmond include Almond, Almonde, Almont, Almon and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Allmond were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: 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.
