Almond History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the name Almond are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the Old English personal name Æthelmund.

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

Migration of the Almond family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Almonds to arrive in North America:
