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

The name Dykeman is generally thought to be derived from an old Frisian-Lower Saxon personal name, Deiko. It is also likely that versions of this name evolved from the German word "Dyke," in which case the name was most likely occupational for someone who built or operated Dikes.

First found in Saxony, where the name came from humble beginnings but gained a significant reputation for its contribution to the emerging mediaeval society. It later became more prominent as many branches of the same house acquired distant estates and branches, some in foreign countries, always elevating their social status by their great contributions to society.
