The lauman name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. lauman was originally a name given to someone who worked as a person who worked as a lawyer. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. The surnames of office, which include military, judicial, papal and other positions of authority, are widespread throughout Europe. Those who were involved in the military, or feudal armies, were given names such as the English surname Archer, the French name Chevalier and the German name Jeger, which means hunter. Names that were derived from judicial and papal titles, such as Bailiff, Squire and Abbott, are still commonly seen with the same surname spelling today.

Early Origins of the lauman family


The surname lauman was first found in Yorkshire, where the prominent Saxon landowner, Lagmann, was recorded in 1066. Lagmann held title to the thriving farming settlement of Wharram Percy in the 11th century. His sons, Alwold and Brictric Lageman, had settled on estates in Lincolnshire by 1066. During the reign of King John the family established themselves in Hampshire, where Hugo Lageman was registered in 1210. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the lauman family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name lauman or a variant listed above:
