The name Fryman, or Freymann as is was sometimes spelled, is German for Free Man. The freeman was not a serf or vassel, but able to follow his craft of training. Lenhard Freymann, from Langenselbold, Germany, was a master linen weaver. This probably gave him a little higher status in town and with the local rulers of the time.
