The surname Doremus was first found in Middlesex where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed.

Spelling variations of this family name include: Dormer, Tormer, Dormar, Dormir, Domer, Domar and others.
