Fullmer Early Origins



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.

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 Fullmer or a variant listed above:

Fullmer Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Edward Fullmer, who arrived in Virginia in 1702
  • Jost Fullmer, who landed in Pennsylvania in 1747

Fullmer Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Friedrich Fullmer, aged 34, landed in America in 1843
