LARIMER Family History

Recorded as Larimer, Lorrimer, Lorymer, Lorimer, Lorriman, Lorryman, Lurriman and probably others, this is a surname of Olde French pre 7th century origins. Probably introduced into the British Isles at or just after the famous Conquest of England in 1066, the word was occupational, and derives from "lormier" which described a maker of (mainly) horse harness, and in particular the bits and other metal parts. The first known recording is that of Gervase Lorimarius also known as Gervase Sadler, who was the bailiff of the city of Norwich in the year 1239.
