Bavaria, Germany is the ancestral home of the Koggman family. The Germans began using hereditary surnames in the 12th century. Koggman is an occupational name, which was derived from the kind of work done by the original bearer. It is a name for a cook in a castle or for a nobleman. The name Cogman was originally derived from the Old German word choc, which in turn was originally derived from the Latin word "coquus," meaning "cook." It was given to a person who prepared food or was a chef.

Koggman Early Origins



The surname Koggman was first found in Spire (Speyer) where since medieval times the name Cogman was closely associated with the social and political advancements of the region's feudal society. Cogman eventually emerged as a noble family with great influence and established several distinguished branches.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Koggmans to arrive in North America, and among them were: William Cockman who settled in Virginia in 1653; Bern Heiner Kockmann settled in America in 1848; Joseph Kockman, age 22; arrived in New York City in 1873.
