Origin of Surname
This surname is a particularly French form of the surname Raymond, itself coming from the Old French male given name Raimund, Raimond, ultimately from the Old German Raginmund, a compound of the elements "ragin", counsel, and "mund", protection.
Initially introduced into England by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066, the name appears as “Raimundus" in the Domesday Book of 1086 for Essex. Further early examples of the name include: William Reimunt (Hampshire, 1207), and Ernald Reimund (Kent, 1208).
Remon is not common in Normandy today, but Raymond and Rémond are.
There are over 370 Remon baptism records from 1627 to 1873 and the family is still present in the island today. Only six of those baptisms were in St Helier. Nearly 300 of the baptisms were in just three parishes - St Peter, St Lawrence and St John.
