The saga of the name Horsemynd follows a line reaching back through history to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It was a name for someone who worked as a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Horsemynd is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Horsemynd family emigrate to North America: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
