Lemmer History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Lemmer family

The surname Lemmer was first found in Belgium, where the name became noted for its many branches in the region, each house acquiring a status and influence which was envied by the princes of the region. The name was first recorded in Antwerp, (Anvers) a fortified city in the province of Antwerp. It is Belgium's commercial center. In the 11th century Godfrey of Bouillon was Marquis of Antwerp. The province is divided into three districts, Antwerp, Malines and Turnhout. In their later history the surname became a power unto themselves and were elevated to the ranks of nobility as they grew into a most influential family.
