Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. The second possible origin is from an early medieval occupational name for a dealer in feathers, from an agent derivative of the Olde English "plume", meaning feather...
