Gillian may be correct - the other line I heard from my grandparents [Dymonds] was related to the Irish name for the village square [or Dymond] in the north of Ireland. You can see it in the village names around Co. Coleraine etc. It could well be that the influence of the Dutch [and therefor the name] came from the army of King William of Orange..in the 15/16th centuries
Does anyone really know?
