Lemon, Lemmon, Leeman - Anglicised Surnames in Ireland

Padraig Mac Giolla-Domhnaigh
1923

Lemon, Lemmon, Leeman, Lemondson—These four names are anglicised forms of M'Clymont (Mac Laomuinn). Buchanan says the Clan Lamond is descended from Lamond O'Neill, son of one of the O'Neills, Princes of Ulster. The dexter hand on the clan crest would lead to a confirmation of Buchanan's statement.
