    Name Meaning

    English (London): of Norman origin, a habitational name from Saint-Maur-des-Fossés (Seine), and possibly also from Saint-Maur-des-Bois (Manche) and Saint-Maur-sur-Loire (Touraine), named from the dedication of their churches to Saint Maur (see Moore 3). The family of this name who have held the title Duke of Somerset since 1547 are said by some to have originated in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés (Seine), while others claim they are from Saint-Maur-sur-Loire (Touraine). They rose to prominence under the Tudors, when Edward Seymour (died 1552) held a high position of office under Henry VIII, who was married to Edward's sister, Jane. The Norman name has been established in Ireland since at least the 17th century.
