Early Origins of the lamdin family
The surname lamdin was first found in Berwickshire
where they held a family seat
on the English/Scottish border. After the Norman Conquest
many of Duke William's rebellious Barons moved north. The border became a convenient no-man's land. Notable families such as the Percy, the Umfravilles and the Nevilles gathered many supporting clans around them. In the 16th century they became known as the 'unruly clans'. In that century, many of those clans drove their herds south, and they settled in Yorkshire
. The name was first recorded in the lands of Lamben in Berwickshire
anciently known as Hassington.
