Horsken History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Horsken is an old Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Horsken is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Early Origins of the Horsken family


The surname Horsken 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 Horsken family to the New World and Oceana


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 Horsken or a variant listed above: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
