The founding heritage of the Orgement family is in the Anglo-Saxon culture that once dominated in Britain. The name Orgement comes from when one of the family worked as a mounted warrior, rider, groom, or horse-dealer. The surname Orgement is derived from the Old English words hors, which means horse, and mann, which means man or servant.

Orgement Early Origins



The surname Orgement 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Orgements to arrive in North America: Christopher Horsman settled in Fort Cumberland Nova Scotia in 1775; Marmaduke Horsman settled in New Jersey in 1677.
