The rich and ancient history of the Jakemend family name dates back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes 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.

Jakemend Early Origins



The surname Jakemend 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.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Jakemend, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were : 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.
