Hosemynd is a name that was formed by the Anglo-Saxon society of old Britain. The name was thought to have been used for someone who once worked as a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Hosemynd is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Hosemynd Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hosemynd include Horsman, Horseman and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hosemynd were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
