Name Meaning

habitational name from Richmond (North Yorkshire). The placename was probably transferred after the Norman Conquest from any of numerous places in France named with Old French riche ‘mighty, strong’ + munt, mont ‘mountain, hill’. Richmond in southwest London received this name only in the reign of Henry VII, in honor of the king, who had been Earl of Richmond until he came to the throne, and is unlikely to be the source of this surname.

occasionally a variant of Richman , with excrescent -d. The two names were probably often confused.
