Plumer Family History

This is an occupational name for a dealer in feathers, deriving from the Olde French "plumier" itself coming from the Latin "plumarius" referring to one who dealt in plumes or feathers. Alternately, Plumer may be an occupational name for a worker in lead, deriving from the Anglo Norman French "plom(b)" or "plum(b)" meaning "lead", plus the agent suffix "er". The surname from the former source is first recorded in Westmoreland (see below), one, Roger Plumer appears in the 1185 "Knights Templars Records of Yorkshire".
