The origins of the Barnhum name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Barnhum was originally derived from a family having lived in the parish named Barnham in Hampshire. Further research showed the name was derived from the Old English words beorg, meaning hill, and ham, meaning homestead.

Early Origins of the Barnhum family


The surname Barnhum was first found in Hampshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Southwick, some say, from the time of the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Migration of the Barnhum family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: James Barnham who arrived in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1785.
