The origins of the lamis name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name lamis was originally derived from a family having lived in the parish of Lammas in the dioceses of Norwich which was registered in the Domesday Book of 1086, as the holding of Ralph de Beaufour. This place-name may also be associated with the village of Lamarsh in the county of Essex. Lamarsh was recorded as a thriving farming community on lands held by Ranulf Peverel.

Migration of the lamis family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England.

Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
