Tolman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Tolman family

The surname Tolman was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. 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 1219 when Hereward Tholeman held estates.
