The name Rammount was brought to England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It comes from the Norman personal name Raimund. This name is composed of the elements ragin, meaning counsel, and mund, meaning protection.

Rammount Early Origins



The surname Rammount was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Rammount Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Raymond, Rayment, Raymonds, Raymon and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Rammount or a variant listed above were: John and William Raymond, who settled in Salem in 1630; Arthur Raymond, who settled in Virginia in 1635; William Raymond, who settled in New Hampshire in 1631.
