Eaglesman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The Dalriadan kingdom of ancient Scotland was the home of the ancestors of the Eaglesman family. Their name indicates that they lived in the old Barony of Eaglesham in the county of Renfrew (now part of the Strathclyde region), Scotland. Here we find the following early entries: "Dominus Robertus de Heiglssam, chaplain, who witnessed a confirmation by Alexander filius Walteri of his father's gifts to the church of Paisley in 1239. Barthelmeu de Egglesham, chapeleyn, was warden of the New Place of Seneware (Sanquhar) in the county of Dunfres in 1296. William de Eglisham, rector of the church of Dunbarny in 1300, reappears as William de Egglisham, archdeacon of Lothian in 1316 and in 1323 as official of St. Andrews." 
Early Origins of the Eaglesman family
The surname Eaglesman was first found in Renfrewshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rinn Friù), a historic county of Scotland, today encompassing the Council Areas of Renfrew, East Renfrewshire, and Iverclyde, in the Strathclyde region of southwestern Scotland.

Eaglesman Spelling Variations

Early Notables of the Eaglesman family (pre 1700)

Migration of the Eaglesman family
The descendants of the Dalriadan families who made the great crossing of the Atlantic still dot communities along the east coast of the United States and Canada. In the American War of Independence, many of the settlers traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. Clan societies and highland games have allowed Canadian and American families of Scottish descent to recover much of their lost heritage. Investigation of the origins of family names on the North American continent has revealed that early immigrants bearing the name Eaglesman or a variant listed above include: Mr. Eagleson landed in Boston Massachusetts in 1768.
