The name Lomar was brought to England in the wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Lomar family lived in Norfolk. Their name, however, is a reference to their place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066, St. Lomer, Normandy, now called Lomer-Sur-Guerne. Alternatively, Leomer was listed as a baptismal name in the Domesday Book. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Lomar family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Lomar were among those contributors: John Lomber settled in Philadelphia in 1808.
