Husband History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Husband is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Husband family when they migrated with the great wave that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. Husband is a name for a peasant farmer. The name was originally derived from the Old English husband, which meant one who tills soil. The modern connotations of the word appeared much later.

Early Origins of the Husband family


The surname Husband was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where lands were granted to them by Duke William for their assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Migration of the Husband family to the New World and Oceana


In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Husbands to arrive on North American shores:
