The name Emmert is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in Emberton in Buckinghamshire.

Emmert Early Origins



The surname Emmert was first found in Buckinghamshire at Emberton, a parish, in the union of Newport-Pagnell, hundred of Newport. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The chapelry of Embleton in Durham was an alternate origin of the family. "This place, anciently called Elmdene from its deep hollow glen abounding with elms, gave name to a family that became resident here about the commencement of the 13th century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
And it is here that the first record of the family was listed in the Pipe Rolls of 1230 as Roger de Emilton. Almost one hundred years later, Richard de Embeldon was listed in the same area in 1326. Norman de Embleton was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Cumberland in 1332. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Embleton is also a parish, in the union of Alnwick in Northumberland.

Emmert Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Emmert are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Emmert include: Emerton, Emberton, Emmerton and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Emmert or a variant listed above:
