Gartmen History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Gartmen family


The surname Gartmen was first found in Surrey where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held estates in that shire and held a family seat at Morden.

Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Gartmen family name include Garth, Garthe, Girth, Gyrth, Gyrthe, Gart, Gartt and others.
