THURMAN Family History

There are two possible sources of this interesting name with both the first elements deriving from the Divine name "Thorr", the name of the God of thunder in Scandinavian mythology. The second element may either derive from the Old Norse "Thormund", meaning Thors protection, or "Thormoth", Thor's wrath. The following examples illustrate the name development for both these origins. Thurmod, (1221, Suffolk), Walter Thurmond (1279 the Hundred Rolls of Oxfordshire), in the modern idiom, the variants are, Thurmand and Thorman.

Janet Thurmond Eager

Hello ~ My name is Janet Thurmond. I currently live in Texas. I have done a DNA y-haplogroup test on my father, Gene Thurmond. I have done a DNA test also. I am 98% England and am trying to search my ancestry. I have searched the Thurmond family, but I have not come across any ancestors from England and do not know how/where to begin.
