The history of the lammasse family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living 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.

lammasse Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name lammasse include Lammas, Lamas, Lammass, Lammasse, Lammesse, Lamnesse, Lammers, Lammis, Lamis and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name lammasse or a variant listed above: Henry and John Lammers, who journeyed to Indiana in 1852; Charlotte Lammers to New York in 1856; and William Lamis to Sacramento in 1867.
