The Anglo-Saxons of Britain first developed the name Horsman. It was a name given to someone who was a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Horsman is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Early Origins of the Horsman family


The surname Horsman 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.
