My information on Ryman origination is as follows: The Ryman famiy was founded n the latter part of the 11th century. It's earliest records are recorded in the "History of the Crusades and Crusaders," the first printed book published in Frankfort, 1583 A.D. Johan Ryman was the apparent founder of the family name. The name supposedly originated in the province of Schlessen, County of Lignitz, Prussia. Johan Ryman, a Crusader of 1095, was granted a coat of arms. In the early part of the 18th century, one famiy member left Prussia and went to Holland, and from there to America.Probably one or more of them eventually went to England and Ireland, but I don't have information about this. The name is spelled variously: Ryman is the original, also seen as Reyman, Reiman and Reimans.
