The present generation of the lammers family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from 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.

lammers Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of lammers include Lammas, Lamas, Lammass, Lammasse, Lammesse, Lamnesse, Lammers, Lammis, Lamis and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The lammers were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
