The name Lomnyer reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Lomnyer family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Lomnyer 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.

Lomnyer Early Origins



The surname Lomnyer 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.

Lomnyer Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Lomer, Lombe, Lomber, Lomener, Lomnyer, Lomar and others.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Lomnyer name or one of its variants: John Lomber settled in Philadelphia in 1808.
