Origins of surname
We have been unable to find any indication of the derivation of this surname. It is seemingly English, or at least British, and appears to be relatively rare. If Armstrong means someone with a strong arm, perhaps Arm means someone with an ordinary arm. Can anyone help us with a derivation?
The name first appears in Jersey records with the marriage of Benjamin Arm, of Alverstoke, Hampshire, to Susanne Drummond, of Grouville, in St Helier in 1829. Henry Arm, also of Hampshire, married Marie Francoise Sebire, from France, at St Helier in 1838.
