Lorymer Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Lorymer include Lorimer, Lorrimer, Lorrimore, Lorriman, Lorrimoor, Lorrimar, Larimore and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned.

The Lorymer were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Patrick Lorimore who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1810; James, John and William Lorimer arrived in Philadelphia between 1820 and 1858; Patrick Lorimire settled in Philadelphia in 1850..
