An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain were the first to use the name of Inmon. The name had a practical origin since it came from when its initial bearer worked as a person who tended a lodge or inn. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries.

Inmon Early Origins



The surname Inmon was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Inmon Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Inmon include Inman, Innman and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Inmon or a variant listed above: John Inman, who settled in Virginia in 1619, a year before the "Mayflower"; Hugh Inman settled in Virginia in 1650; Samuel Inman and William Inman settled in Philadelphia in 1794..
