Where did the English Hallman family come from? What is the English Hallman family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hallman family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hallman family history?

The Anglo-Saxon name Hallman comes from when the family resided in the county of Staffordshire where they were known as the dwellers at the hall. This surname was originally derived from the Old English word halemann, which literally means someone who lived by a large house.


Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Hallman include Hallman, Halman and others.

First found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

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:
