The Anglo-Saxon name Hemp comes from when the family resided in Suffolk. The surname Hemp belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Hemp Early Origins



The surname Hemp was first found in Sussex 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.

Hemp Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hemp has been recorded under many different variations, including Hemstead, Hampstead, Hempstead, Hemsted and others.

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 Hemp or a variant listed above:

  • Henry Hemp, who landed in Frederick County, Maryland in 1797

Hemp Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • John Hemp, who arrived in Pennsylvania in 1864

Hemp Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Henry Hemp arrived in Adelaide, Australia aboard the ship "Lalla Rookh" in 1840 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
