Fullmer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Fullmer family


The surname Fullmer was first found in Norfolk 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. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced at Thetford in the 14th century. Thomas de Fulmer held a family seat in Essex in 1239. Fulmer is a village and civil parish in Buckinghamshire. The village dates back to 1198 when it was listed as Fugelmere.

Fullmer Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Fullmer has been recorded under many different variations, including Fulmer, Fulmerston, Fullmerston, Fullmaston, Fulmeston, Fullmeston, Fulmaston, Fulmerton and many more.

Migration of the Fullmer family to the New World and Oceana


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 Fullmer or a variant listed above:
