LONGMORE Family History

This interesting Scottish surname is one of the forms of the topographical name "Longmore". There are several villages so named, including Longmore near Ayr and Langmuir near Kirkintilloch. The word and hence the surname denotes a person who lived at a village by an extensive area of marsh or fen. The derivation comes from the Olde English pre 7th Century "lang", for long and "mor" a fen. The surname is found as early as 1296, and amongst the recordings are examples such as Robert de Langemore of Edinburgh, and Johan de Langemore of Ayrshire both of whom rendered homage in that year...
