Name Meaning

English and Scottish:1. status name, from Middle English yoman, yeman, used of an attendant of relatively high status in a noble household, ranking between a Sergeant and a Groom , or between a Squire and a Page . The word appears to derive from a compound of Old English geong ‘young’ + mann ‘man’. Later in the Middle English period it came to be used of a modest independent freeholder, and this latter sense may well lie behind some examples of the surname. 2. topographic name, an expanded form of Yeo .
