Raymont is one of the many names that the Normans brought with them when they conquered England in 1066. The name Raymont came from the Norman personal name Raimund. This name is composed of the elements ragin, meaning counsel, and mund, meaning protection.

Raymont Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Raymont has been recorded under many different variations, including Raymond, Rayment, Raymonds, Raymon and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Raymonts were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
