Hinman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient name of Hinman finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a person who tended a lodge or inn. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries.


Early Origins of the Hinman family


The surname Hinman was first found in Lancashire 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.

Hinman Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hinman family name include Inman, Innman and others.

Migration of the Hinman family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hinman surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
