Sermon Early Origins



The surname Sermon was first found in Hertfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The question of whether this relates to a preacher or a knight is still unresolved. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1312 when Richard and Ralph Sermoner held estates in that shire.
