Joachim History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Joachim family

The surname Joachim was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 14th century when Roger Yoke held estates in that county in 1317.
