My family has been wondering about the origin and meaning of our last name Szurmant.
The origin of our line is in the Srem area. It appears that all Szurmants in the area are merging on my Greatgreatgreatgrandfather Jacobus Szurmant (1798-1849) (also Szurmann, Szurmandt, Szurman). Most records are from Dolsk.
I cannot find any record of a Szurmant before that or know anything about the meaning and origin of the name. Any info or best guess would be much appreciated.
