The origins of the name Lemmint are with the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from the baptismal name for the son of Leman, which was taken from the personal name Liefman.

Lemmint Early Origins



The surname Lemmint was first found in Suffolk at Wenhaston, a parish, in the union and hundred of Blything. "The family of Leman had a [family] seat here. The church is an ancient structure in the decorated English style, with a square embattled tower, and contains several monuments to the Leman family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
