Sirmans History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
Early Origins of the Sirmans family
The surname Sirmans 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.
