Armyn Early Origins



The surname Armyn was first found in Lincolnshire where the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Osgooby, held by Odo the Bishop of Bayeux, the King's half brother who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The parish Silk Willoughby in Lincolnshire was an ancient family seat for the family. "The manor was possessed by Sir William Armyn, at first keeper of the privy seal and vice-chancellor to Edward II., and afterwards lord chancellor, and bishop of Norwich; it remained in the family until 1662."

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Armyns to arrive on North American shores: Alice Armson, aged 25, who arrived at Ellis Island from London, in 1897; August Armson, aged 40, who arrived at Ellis Island from Chicago, Ill., U.S.A., in 1910.
