Origins Available: English, German


The Anglo-Saxon name Heineman comes from when the family resided in the parish of Heene, which is now part of Worthing in the county of Sussex. The surname Heineman belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. The surname Heineman may also be derived from the personal name Henry.

Heineman Early Origins



The surname Heineman was first found in Sussex, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Heineman or a variant listed above:
