Jarmyn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The rich and ancient history of the Jarmyn family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from the baptismal name German. The surname Jarmyn referred to the son of German which belongs to the category of patronymic surnames. In Old English, patronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.
Early Origins of the Jarmyn family
