Remmington Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Remmington are characterized by many spelling variations. 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 Remmington include: Remington, Remmington, Rimington, Rimmington and others.

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 Remmington or a variant listed above:

Remmington Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • P. Remmington settled in San Francisco in 1850
  • J W Remmington, who arrived in San Francisco, California in 1851

Remmington Settlers in Canada in the 18th Century

  • James Remmington, who landed in Nova Scotia in 1774
