My name is Sue Horsman, and I live in the UK, and am doing a One Name Study of the Horsman, Horseman and Horsaman surnames.
A One Name Study is a project which researches all occurrences of a surname across the world, as opposed to simply following a person’s direct ancestors.
I am trying to discover as much as possible about people with these surnames, to reconstruct the different families, and hopefully help other researchers research their Hors(e)man ancestors.
I’ve been researching these surnames for nearly 20 years, and have had lots of help and information from many people around the world who are related to families bearing these names. As such I’ve built up a large quantity of information from a variety of sources.
I am a member of the Guild of One Name Studies - GOONS, which is a Society whose members study all occurrences of a surname, as opposed to simply their direct ancestors. As you can imagine this is a task which will occupy me for years.
On this site you will find information about the Hors(e)man name, the origins of the different families and the places to which they travelled, as well as details about some of the more notable members.
If you have any information on any of these families; for example, documents, photographs, personal histories etc, I would love to hear from you.
If you have Horsman or Horseman or Horsaman ancestors and would like to try and find more about them, please get in touch.
