The family name Horgemant is one of the oldest Anglo-Saxon names of Britain. It was originally a name for a person who worked as a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Horgemant is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Horgemant Early Origins



The surname Horgemant was first found in Buckinghamshire 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



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
