The German surname Harsman was a patronymic, created from the name of the original bearer's father. As a personal name, Harsman long predated surnames. There is record of a Hartman von der Aue, who was a 12th century epic poet. The German root "hart" or "hard," meant " bold" or "brave."

Harsman Early Origins



The surname Harsman was first found in Hanover, where the name was anciently associated with the tribal conflicts of the area. They declared allegiances to many nobles and princes of early history, lending their influence in struggles for power and status within the region. They branched into many houses, and their contributions were sought by many leaders in their search for power. There is an early record of Ticze Hartman in Liegnitz in 1369.
