The name Rymar is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a person who had the gift of poetry as in "the ryhmer, poet versifier, singer" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and as such came from a variety of places throughout the United Kingdom. Probably the most famous of the name in early records was Thomas of Erceldoune, sometimes styled Thomas Learmonth ( fl. c. 1220-1298), a Scottish laird in Berwickshire and reputed prophet who was known by the sobriquets Thomas the Rhymer or True Thomas. According to tradition, Thomas the Rhymer, was carried off by the "Queen of Elfland" and returned having gained the gift of prophecy, as well as the inability to tell a lie. The story appears in at least five manuscripts and as the protagonist in the popular ballad "Thomas the Rhymer."

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 Rymar or a variant listed above: George Rymer settled in New England in 1772; Martha Rymer settled with her husband in Rapahanock in Virginia in 1729.
