Where did the German Baughman family come from? What is the German Baughman family crest and coat of arms? When did the Baughman family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Baughman family history?

The Baughman surname comes from the German word "baum," or "boum" in Middle High and Old German, meaning "tree." As such, Baughman may have originally been a nickname for someone who lived by a tree. Other instances of the Baughman surname no doubt derive from the Middle High German word "bumann," meaning "a farmer."

Many cultural groups lived in the German states in medieval times. Each had its own dialect and traditions, and unique variations of popular names. Low German, which is similar to contemporary Dutch, was spoken in Westphalia. German names are characterized by additions such as regional suffixes and phrases that tell something about the origin or background of its original bearer. Further contributing to the variation in German names was the fact that there were no spelling rules in medieval times: scribes recorded names according to their sound. The recorded spelling variations of Baughman include Baumann, Bauman, Baumman, Baumenn, Baumen and many more.

First found in the Rhine region, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. The earliest trace of the Baumann family is found in Strasbourg, where they flourished at the beginning of the 14th century.

Between the 17th and 20th centuries, hundreds of thousands of Europeans came to North America, and many Rhinelanders were among them. They had many various reasons for making the choice: to escape poverty and persecution, for adventure, and for the opportunity to own their own land. Ellis Island, one of the main American immigration centers, saw many settlers as they moved on to the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Texas, Illinois, California, and New York. In Canada, they found homes in Ontario, and on the great plains of the Midwestern provinces. The Baughman were among of the early German families that came to North America:
