Ollmand Early Origins



The surname Ollmand was first found in Worcestershire 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 John Uleman held lands.

As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Ollmand include: Ullman, Ullmann, Ulman, Ulmann, Ulghan, Ulgham, Ulghman, Olman, Ollman, Ollmann, Ollmon, Olmond and many more.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. 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 Ollmand or a variant listed above: Ann Olman who went to Barbados in 1655; or Dennis Olman who went to Virginia in 1670. These pioneers were followed by people like Frederick Ullman who went to America in 1732.
