NEUMANN Family History

Recorded in several spellings including the German and French Neuman, Neumann, and Nyeman, and the Anglo-Scottish Newman, this notable surname is of Germanic, and Anglo-Saxon origins. It was a medival nickname that was given to a stranger to a place. The derivation is from the pre 7th century word "neowe" meaning new, with "mann", which in this context was personal and singular. In the surviving registers of England, Scotland, and Germany, the first countries to adopt any recognizeable system of central registration Godwin Nieweman appears Pipe Rolls of Oxfordshire in 1169, and in Germany Herman Nyeman of Barth, in 1325.
