This occupational surname referred to the individual who was an officer of the law, someone who could summon people to court. The name could also refer to the officer who was a tenant by military service under the rank of a knight.

Migration of the Searjeyn family to the New World and Oceana


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 Searjeyns to arrive in North America: John Sargeant settled in Virginia in 1675; James Sargeant settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630; William Sargent settled in Charlestown Massachusetts in 1635.
