The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Leaming come from when the family resided in the village of Leeming which was in the county of Yorkshire near the town of Bedale. The surname Leaming is a Habitation name which forms a broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. Habitation names were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. In this case the surname Leaming denotes those who came from Leeming.
