GAMMONS Family HistoryThere are two possible sources of this interesting and unusual Medieval English name, the first and most likely being that it is a nickname surname for a merry or sporty person, fond of or good at games. The derivation of this surname is from the Old English pre 7th Century "gamen", amusement, and was also given to the winner of "the gamey" the prize in a foot race, "men usen offe this game en, that two men...... rennen a space for a priis, and he that cometh first to his ende shall have the gamen that is sett, whether it be spere or gloves or othir thing that is putt".
