Horseen History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Horseen name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Horseen was originally a name given to someone who worked as a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Horseen is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Early Origins of the Horseen family

The surname Horseen 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.

Migration of the Horseen family to the New World and Oceana

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Horseen or a variant listed above: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
