In the Norman Exchequer Rolls of 1198-1203, I find mention of a "De Soramonda," in the bailifry of Jordan de la Laund, to whom he paid a fine for license to marry. Peter de Surcomunt, 1165, held half a knight's fee of Gervase Paganell in Staffordshire.—Liber Niger. "He was heavily fined on the Stafford Pipe Roll of 22 Hen. II., under pretence of an infraction of the Forest Laws, but in reality for his participation in the rebellion of the King's sons. A note against his fine of twenty marks, stating it to be collected in Berkshire, denotes the locality of this fee, but I have been unable to identify it."—Staffordshire Historical Collections, vol. i. The name is occasionally written Suzcolmunt. Agnes de Scirmound occurs in Oxfordshire about 1272.—Rotuli Hundredorum.
