The distinguished surname Seeman is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is derived from the Old English "saemann," meaning "sea-man," and was likely first borne by a sailor.

Seeman Early Origins



The surname Seeman was first found in Suffolk, where the Seeman family was anciently seated 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. However, many Saxon surnames survived, and the family name Seeman was first referenced in the year 1169 when John Semanni was found with estates in Suffolk.
