Westerman History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English, Swedish


Early Origins of the Westerman family


The surname Westerman was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat 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. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1379 when Johannes Westerman held a family seat with estates in that shire.
