The name Loughmen is derived from the Middle English personal name Lefman.

Loughmen Early Origins



The surname Loughmen was first found in Devon. where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates at Whitstone where they held a family seat.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Loughmen or a variant listed above: Barnard Lowman, who arrived in Barbados in 1685; George Lowman, who was on record in New York in 1758; James Lowman, who arrived in Virginia in 1705; Mary Lowman, who came to Virginia in 1690.
