Fleming

It is assumed that anyone of this name descends from one of the many Flemish immigrants who came to Britain from the region of Flanders - roughly where Belgium is today - during the Middle Ages. In LONDON, the Flemings are a family who are usually associated with grocery, bakery or other retail trades and crafts.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1598, Queen Elizabeth ordered a banquet featuring a food source from the new world: potatoes. The royal cooks, having never prepared potatoes before, threw the veggie away and cooked the green part or eye instead, sickening the whole royal court. Elizabeth banned the vegetable. The ban was eventually lifted a few years later when potatoes gained popularity in Spain, France and Italy.
