Origins Available: English, Scottish


The name Lorine originates in Normandy where records show Henricus Loherene was listed there in 1180. It is derived from the Old French "le Lohereng," meaning "the man from Lorraine." Other records show the fief of Lauraine, Normady 1180-95.

Lorine Early Origins



The surname Lorine was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where Albert de Loraine (Lothariensis) was listed as a Baron in this county and Hereford in 1086. Roger Loering was later listed in Bedfordshire in 1165. Geoffrey le Lohareng was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1158-59 and Dauit le Loreng was listed in the Feet of Fines of Norfolk in 1197.

A few years later, Thomas Loring was listed in the Assize Rolls of Somerset in 1280. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 revealed more listings of the name: Peter de Loring in Bedfordshire; and John le Loring in Oxfordshire. Kirby's Quest, another census a the time of King Edward III (1312 -1377) listed Alice Loring and Emma Loring both in Somerset. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In the same century, the name was also found in Scotland where Eustace de Lorreyne was a Commissioner, at Berwick on Tweed in 1333. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Lorine Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Loring, Loreing, Lorring, Lorin, Lorrin and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Lorine or a variant listed above: Thomas Loring, his wife and two sons who arrived in Dorchester, MA in 1634; Robert Loring, who came to Virginia in 1664; James Loring, who settled in Virginia in 1682.
