Marmion of Lincolnshire

The first Marmions in Britain were Normans who settled in England after 1066. The Lincolnshire family trace themselves to Robert Marmion, who died in 1144.

Marmion of Ireland

The first Marmions in Ireland arrived with the Anglo-Normans in the 12th or early 13th century. Heaviest concentration of the name are found in the adjacent areas of County Meath, County Louth and County Down, with a more distant branch in County Cork.

The first documented Marmion in Ireland was Gilbert Marmion of Dublin and Wexford, who was alive c. 1300. He is said to have been a descendant of one Robert Marmion who arrived in Ireland between 1169–1171.
