The surname Frymen is a ancient Anglo-Saxon name whose history dates back to the days before the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from "freomann" or "frigmann," Old English words and personal names meaning "free-born man."

Frymen Early Origins



The surname Frymen was first found in the county of Essex, where it was borne as a personal name by Freman Sceil in 1188. The first recorded instance of Frymen as a surname appeared shortly thereafter; William Freman was listed in the Feet of Fines of Norfolk in 1196.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Frymen or a variant listed above: Samuel Freeman and his wife Apphia Quick, who arrived in Mssachusetts in 1630 with their son Henry; Alice Freeman, who settled in New England in 1635.
