    Name Meaning

    English: locative name from one or more of the many minor places called Lachemere or Lechemere (‘boggy pool’ in Middle English), such as Latchmere House in Ham (Surrey), Latchmoor Farm in Brockenhurst (Hants), Letchmore Heath in Aldenham and Letchmoor Green in Stevenage (both Herts). In Sussex, where the surname is most frequent (appearing in Lashmars Hall in Henfield and Lashmar Wood in Wivelsfield), the place of origin may be represented by Lashmar Road in East Preston, which is recorded as Lachemere in 1321 and The Great Lashmars in 1841.
