Fulmer Early Origins



The surname Fulmer 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.

Fulmer Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Fulmer family name include Fulmer, Fulmerston, Fullmerston, Fullmaston, Fulmeston, Fullmeston, Fulmaston, Fulmerton and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Fulmer surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
