Grammer Surname Origin is French
Posted by: Jon Milner (ID *****5716) Date: June 21, 2002 at 11:47:30

The Grammer Surname has a French origin. Grammer is derived from "gramaire" Old French for scholar or astrologer. The main original French surname was Grammaire. I recently found soume Grammers spelled Grammaire in England on a search of www.familysearch.org Some persons of that surname may have accompanied William the Conqueror in 1066 during the Norman Conquest or shortly thereafter. Furthermore, persons of the Grammaire surname may have been French Huguenots that fled France for England during the 1600's under the reigns of Louis XIII and Louis XIV of France.
