Hasselman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The lineage of the name Hasselman begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in the village of Haslam, in the county of Lancashire. This place-name was originally derived from the Old English word haesel-hamm, which simply refers to a hazel-wood farm.
Early Origins of the Hasselman family
The surname Hasselman was first found in Lancashire at Haslam. But of this place, we cannot find any trace today. We can find that Hugh de Haslum, de Hesellum held lands there as recorded in the Assize Rolls of 1246, but little else. 
Another source claims that Derbyshire is the home to the family. "Haslam is an old Rochdale name of the 16th century. It also occurs in Derbyshire. Several mayors and aldermen of Newark, Notts, in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries bore this name."  In this case, the name is likely derived from Hasland, a township, in the parish and union of Chesterfield, hundred of Scarsdale.

Hasselman migration to the United States +
To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hasselman were among those contributors:
