PLUMB Family History

This interesting and unusual surname has two possible derivations. Firstly, it may be of Anglo-Saxon origin, as a topographical name for someone who lived by a plum tree, from the Olde English pre 7th Century word "plume", plum (tree). Alternatively, it may be of Old French origin, as a metonymic occupational name for a plumber, from the Old French "plomb", itself from the Latin "plumbum", meaning lead. This was later assimilated to the Old French "plummier", a plumber. Other surnames from this source include Plum, Plumbe and Plum(p)tre(e).
