Nemarch is an ancient Norman name that arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Nemarch family lived in Breckonshire, Wales. Their name, however, is a reference to Neuf-Marche, near Neufchatel, Normandy, the family's place of residence prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Nemarch Early Origins



The surname Nemarch was first found in Breckonshire in Wales where they held a family seat from the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in the year 1066.

Nemarch Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Newmarch, Newmarche, Newmarsh, Newmarshe, Newmark, Numarch, Numarche, Numark, Newmack, Newdiche, Newdick and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Nemarch or a variant listed above: John Newmarch, who came to Rowley, MA in 1643; William Newmarch, who settled in Maryland in 1679; Jonathon Newmarsh, who settled in Virginia in 1726; H. Newmark who came to San Francisco Cal. in 1862.
