Early Origins of the Ollmant family
The surname Ollmant 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.

Migration of the Ollmant family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England
made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Ollmant 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.
