The ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of England
produced the name of Dearmont. It was given to 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.
Early Origins of the Dearmont family
The surname Dearmont 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.

Migration of the Dearmont family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Dearmont arrived in North America very early:
