Orgemane History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient name of Orgemane finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from a name for a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Orgemane is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Early Origins of the Orgemane family


The surname Orgemane was first found in Buckinghamshire 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.

Orgemane Spelling Variations


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Orgemane family name include Horsman, Horseman and others.

Migration of the Orgemane family to the New World and Oceana


For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Orgemane surname or a spelling variation of the name include : Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
