The roots of the Heminway surname reach back to the language of the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The Heminway surname comes from someone having lived in the Orkneys, where the family was found since the early Middle Ages.

Heminway Early Origins



The surname Heminway was first found in Yorkshire, 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.

The Great Migration



Those who made the voyage were greeted with ample opportunity to acquire land and a political climate far away from the oppressive monarchy of the old country. They settled along the east coast of what would become Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence, those who remained loyal to England traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, many Scots living in North America have begun to recover their rich heritage through festivals, highland games, and Clan societies. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name Heminway: Mary and John Hemmingway settled in Maryland in 1774.
