were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the lammase family name include Lammas, Lamas, Lammass, Lammasse, Lammesse, Lamnesse, Lammers, Lammis, Lamis and many more.

Migration of the lammase family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland
, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the lammase surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Henry and John Lammers, who journeyed to Indiana in 1852; Charlotte Lammers to New York in 1856; and William Lamis to Sacramento in 1867.
