An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The origins of the Trueman surname date from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name originated with an early member who was a faithful or trusty man. Checking further we found the name was derived from the Old English words trew, trewe, trow, and trowe. These all come from the Old English word treowe, which means faithful, loyal, or trustworthy. The latter portion of the name is derived from the word man.

Trueman Early Origins



The surname Trueman was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Trueman or a variant listed above:
