Heasman is a name that came to England in the 11th century wave of migration that was set off by the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Heasman family lived in Warwickshire. The Hayman, however, does not refer to that area, but is a topographical reference to an enclosure of some sort. The name was originally derived from the Old English word haye, which meant enclosure.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. For such families, the shores of Ireland, Australia, and the New World beckoned. They left their homeland at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. Many arrived after the long voyage sick, starving, and without a penny. But even those were greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. Numerous English settlers who arrived in the United States and Canada at this time went on to make important contributions to the developing cultures of those countries. 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 Heasman were among those contributors:

Heasman Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • William G. Heasman, aged 42, who settled in America from Bridgworth Salop, in 1905
  • Nellie Heasman, aged 24, who emigrated to the United States from Tennants Hill, England, in 1910
  • Edna E. Heasman, aged 29, who landed in America from Etham, England, in 1914
  • William Heasman, aged 38, who landed in America, in 1924

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Coelum non solum
Motto Translation: Heaven not earth.
