Lomber History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
When the ancestors of the Lomber family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They 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. 
Early Origins of the Lomber family
The surname Lomber was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from early times, after the Norman Conquest in 1066. They were originally from St. Lomer, a parish in Normandy, which is now called Lomer-Sur-Guerne. The name was anciently written Villa Sancti Lauomari.

Lomber Spelling Variations
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Lomber has been recorded under many different variations, including Lomer, Lombe, Lomber, Lomener, Lomnyer, Lomar and others.

To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Lombers were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
