The name Warmincham arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Warmincham family lived in Northampton, at Warmington, a village and civil parish. The place dates back to c. 980 when it was listed as Wyrmingtun. By the time of the Domesday Book, the name had evolved to Wermintone and was derived from the Old English personal name "Wyrma" + the suffix "tun." The name literally translates to "estate associated with a man called Wyrma. The last census lists a population of 874. In Warwickshire, there's another Warmington in the Stratford District Council area. In this case, the name also dates back to the Domesday Book [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

where it was listed as Warmintone. Literally, the place name means "estate associated with a man called Waerme or Waermund," again from the Old English personal name. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The last census for this village listed only 297 people residing there.

Warmincham Early Origins



The surname Warmincham was first found in Northamptonshire where they had been granted lands by King William after the Norman Conquest, for their support at the Battle of Hastings in 1066. They acquired the lands from the King through Peterborough Abbey and provided two fully equipped men at arms for the Abbey. The Mill at Warmington provided 325 eels annually for the King's table. This mill was restored after it had fallen into disrepair in the 19th century to now include a retail showroom.

Warmincham Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Warmington, Wermington and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Warmincham or a variant listed above: John and James Warmington settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1722.
