Subject: Origins of LADEMAN(N)

I would like to introduce myself as a new subscriber.
I am researching the name LAIDMAN in England, of which there is an early
variant LADEMAN(N). This name apparently originates from Pomerania. The
earliest mention I have found in England is ca 1540. Probably one individual is
the ancestor of all the hundreds of English/American/Australian
LAIDMAN/LADEMAN. He may have emigrated to England for religious reasons during
the first half of the C16. In any case, a great number of the early
LAIDMAN/LADEMAN were Protestant clergymen. The name in England seems to start
on the north-east coastal regions of Yorkshire, Durham and Northumberland.
I should be very grateful to hear from anyone who knows of this name, and can
tell me its place of origin in Pomerania. Also its etymology - could it be an
occupational name. "Leather-worker" perhaps?
With many thanks for any help
