Origin of the Name Harniman

The Harniman family history was found in the allfamilycrests.com archives. Meaning 'in the herne', harniman is a locational name from a nook or corner. Variants include Hernaman, Herniman, Harniman, Horniman, Hurman, Hearne, Hurn, Hurne and Ahearn. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland , Scotland , and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout the above islands. Examples of such are a Henry en le Hurne, from County Buckinghamshire, who was recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls' in the Year 1273, and a Robert in the Herne who was recorded in the 'Close Rolls'. A Thomas in the Hyrne was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', in the West Riding of Yorksire, England , in 1379, and a Adam in the Hurne, from County Oxfordshire, was also recorded in the 'Hundred Rolls' in the year 1273.
The Harniman coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Harniman descendants.
