lawemon is a name that was formed by the Anglo-Saxon society of old Britain. The name was thought to have been used for someone who once 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.

The surname lawemon was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

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 lawemon include Lawman, Laweman, Lawemon, Lawghman, Lagmann, Lageman, Lauman, Layamon and many more.

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 lawemon were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Peter Lawman, who sailed to the West Indies in 1697; Stephen Lauman to Pennsylvania in 1733; and Martin Lauman to Pennsylvania in 1746.
