Moorman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Moorman family

The surname Moorman was first found in Suffolk 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 year 1275 when Ralph Moorman held estates in that county.
