The age-old Pictish-Scottish family name Aparms is derived from the name Abraham. The name means chief (or father) of a multitude and exalted father.

Early Origins of the Aparms family


The surname Aparms 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]

Migration of the Aparms family to the New World and Oceana


In such difficult times, Ireland, Australia, and North America looked like better homes for many Scots. The trips were expensive and grueling, but also rewarding, as the colonies were havens for those unwelcome in the old country. That legacy did not die easily, though, and many were forced to fight for their freedom in the American War of Independence. The Scottish legacy has resurface in more recent times, though, through Clan societies, highland games, and other organizations. Immigration and passenger lists have shown many early immigrants bearing the old Scottish name of Aparms: John and Thomas Abram who were among the first settlers in North America, settling in Virginia in 1635 and 1653 respectively; William Abrams settled in Maryland in 1733.
