MORTIMER Family HistoryRecorded in various spellings including Mortimer and the more unusual Mortimore, this is one of the great surnames of history. It is often English, can be Scottish and is sometimes Irish, but in all cases the origin is Norman-French. It was Introduced into England in 1066 in the person of Roger de Mortemer, one of William, The Conqueror's commanders. Such was his success that he was rewarded with major land grants, mainly in the Welsh Marches. In the famous etymological book "Patronymica Brittania" it is recorded that "the castle and barony of Mortemer lie in the arrondissement of Neufchatel in Normandy"...
