The name Youmans is from the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name was given to a person who was a free landholder.

The surname Youmans was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very early times, before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Youmans family name include Yeoman, Yeomans, Yoemans and others.
