lageman is an old Anglo-Saxon
name that was given to a person who was a person who worked as a lawyer. Occupational
names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. The surnames of office, which include military, judicial, papal and other positions of authority, are widespread throughout Europe. Those who were involved in the military, or feudal
armies, were given names such as the English surname Archer,
the French name Chevalier
and the German name Jeger,
which means hunter.
Names that were derived from judicial and papal titles, such as Bailiff, Squire
are still commonly seen with the same surname spelling today.
