Dermint History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Irish


The ancient history of the name Dermint dates back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It was a name 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 Dermint family

Dermint Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Dermint include Dearman, Deerman, Dereman, Derman, Durman and others.

Migration of the Dermint family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Dermint or a variant listed above: Charles Dearman who settled in Philadelphia in 1858; Henry and Joseph Dearmon settled in Willington Del. in 1789; James Dearmand settled in Barnstable Massachusetts in 1822..
