Early Origins of the Loosemoor family
The surname Loosemoor was first found in Devon
, at Loosemoor in the Oakford parish within Witheridge Hundred
. Unfortunately, the place name cannot be found today. The earliest record on the name was found in the Devon
Eyre Roll for AD 1238 where Walter Losmer was listed as capturing Robert de Sicca Villa and imprisoned him for the authorities. Almost one hundred
years later, the Lay Subsidy returns for Oakford listed Robertus de Losmore in 1327 and Robertus de Losamor in 1332. This latter entry was a tax entry as he was one of fifteen men in Oakford tithing assessed for tax, from a population of about 300 or so. Such a listing is significant, as he must have been a person of considerable wealth at the time.
