Jakemant History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Jakemant is one of the oldest family names to come from the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from the baptismal name Jack. This personal name was originally derived from the French Jaques, and was found in England during the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Early Origins of the Jakemant family


The surname Jakemant was first found in Essex 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 Jakemant family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Jakemant were among those contributors: James Jackman settled in New England in 1630; John and Elizabeth Jackman settled in Barbados in 1673. In Newfoundland, the Jackmans of Devon traded with Newfoundland as early as 1562.
