Origins Available: English, Irish


The origins of the Dermyn surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was 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.

Dermyn Early Origins



The surname Dermyn 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



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Dermyns to arrive in North America: 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..
