Cleeman Early Origins



The surname Cleeman was first found in Suffolk where Great Glemham is a village and a civil parish in the Suffolk Coastal District and Little Glemham is a small village a few miles away. Both places date back to the Domesday Book where they were listed as Glaimham which probably meant "homestead or village noted for its revelry or games," having derived from the Old English words gleam + ham.
