Reymond is one of the thousands of new names that the Norman Conquest of 1066 brought to England. It comes from the Norman personal name Raimund. This name is composed of the elements ragin, meaning counsel, and mund, meaning protection.

Reymond Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Reymond family name include Raymond, Rayment, Raymonds, Raymon and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Reymond family to immigrate North America:

  • Tho Reymond, who arrived in Virginia in 1642

Reymond Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Joseph Reymond, who landed in South Carolina in 1735

Reymond Settlers in United States in the 19th Century
