Seamons History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The distinguished surname Seamons is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is derived from the Old English "saemann," meaning "sea-man," and was likely first borne by a sailor. "Sæmann occurs in Domesday-Book. Seman is the usual 13th-cent [version of the name] Occasionally this name may represent the Anglo-Saxon Saemund [Old English sae, sea+mund, protector] and Sigemund [Old English sige, victory]" [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"In the Domesday of Surrey there is a Seman, who held lands before the making of that record. Anglo-Saxon Sae-mann, a sailor." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
