Romar Early Origins



The surname Romar was first found in Lincolnshire where "the first of this name on record is Gerald de Romare, feudal lord of Bolingbroke whose son, William de Romare was in 1118 governor of Newmarch, Normandy, and in arms against Hugh de Gournay, then in rebellion." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
"A castle was built [at Bolingbroke] by William de Romara, Earl of Lincoln, of which his descendant, Alicia de Lacey, was dispossessed by Edward II. Henry IV. was born in this fortress, and from it took the name of Henry of Bolingbroke: it was nearly demolished in the civil wars, the south-west tower being all that remains." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
