The name Dearman comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a brave or bold man. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the word deor, which meant wild animal, or brave, or bold, and mann, for man. Thus, the name meant "wild man," or "brave man." Conflicting records show the name was a baptismal in origin as in the son of Dereman and evidence points to the Domesday Book where Dereman and Derman was found. In the scenario, the name was an expression of affection.

Dearman Early Origins



The surname Dearman was first found in Essex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Dearman were among those contributors:
