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

Lowman Early Origins



The surname Lowman 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.
