FIRMIN Family History

This very interesting surname is generally accepted as being of Old English pre 7th century origins. The first and most likely is that it is job descriptive for the manager of a large farm or even an estate. The derivation is from the elements 'fir' meaning strong or firm and 'man(n)' - literally friend, servant or worker. Found recorded as Firman, Furman, and For(e)man it's first recording as a 'given' name pre-dating a surname, is in the 1086 Domesday Book. Here one 'Firmin' was registered in Cambridgeshire.
