Artman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Artman surname first began to be used in the German state of Bavaria, some time after the 12th century, when hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules, and names that were derived from locations became particularly common. The family name Artman is a local surname. Originally denoting the proprietorship of an estate or influence within a village, the German preposition von, which means from or of, used with local names, was taken as a mark of aristocracy. The surname Artman was given to someone who lived in Regensburg, Bavaria. The family name Artman can be traced back to the Middle Ages, when Bavaria was a region characterized by court intrigue and heroic battles over power and prestige. The Artman family was involved in the ancient feuds between noble families, who competed for domination of the territory. In the era of rapidly changing allegiances, the Artman family aligned itself with many different noble families and their support was sought by many leaders in their search for power.

Migration of the Artman family to the New World and Oceana


The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
