This name is composed of two elements: Ęthel, which means noble, and mund, which means protection. However, the surname Elmount may also derive from the Old French word aleman, which means German.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Elmount or a variant listed above: Awdry Almond who settled in New England in 1635; Joseph Almond settled in Virginia in 1670; Susan Almond settled in Jamaica in 1661; William Almond settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1827.
