HARTMAN was a baptismal name ‘the son of Hartmund’. The name is of German origin, meaning
‘the strong man’. Early records of the name in England mention Herteman Hauber, 1273 County Oxford. Hartmann Von Aue (1170-1215) was the German poet of the Middle High German period, who took part in the Crusade of 1197. In his poetry he related how wordly passion is expiated by religious faith, and his songs were mainly love songs. The rise of surnames, according to the accepted theory, was due to the Norman Conquest of 1066 when Old English personal-names were rapidly superseded by the new christian names introduced by the Normans. Of these, only a few were really popular and in the 12th century this scarcity of christian names led to the increasing use of surnames to distinguish the numerous individuals of the same name. Some Normans had hereditary surnames before they came to England, but there is evidence that surnames would have developed in England even had there been no Norman Conquest. The
development of the feudal system made it essential that the king should know exactly what service each person owed. Payments to and by the exchequer required that debtors and creditors should be particularized, and it became official that each individual acquired exact identification. Nicolai Hartmann (1882-1950) was the German philosopher born in Riga (Latvia). He studied at St. Petersburg and Marburg, and was professor successively at Marburg (1920) and Cologne (1925), Berlin (1931) and Gottingen from 1945. He was one of Germany’s most respected philosophers in the immediate post-war years. Surnames as we recognise them today are believed to have been introduced by the Normans after the Invasion of 1066. The first mention of such names appears in the Domesday Book and they were progressively adopted between the 11th and 15th centuries. It was the nobles and upper classes who first assumed a second name, setting them apart from the common people who continued to use only the single name given to them at birth. It was not until the reign of Edward II (1307-1327) that it became common practice to use a secondary name, originally a name reflecting the place of birth, a nickname, an occupational name or a baptismal name which had been passed on from a parent to the child, as an additional means of identification.

The surname Hackett, which came to Ireland with the Anglo-Normans towards the close of the
12th century, is of Scandinavian origin, deriving from the Old Norse ‘Haki’ and Old Danish ‘Hake’. Occasionally it was applied as a nickname from the fish called Hake. The family established themselves in Leinster where their name is commemorated in the townlands of Hacketstown and Ballyhacket Lower and Upper in Rathvilly barony, County Carlow. The first of the name to come to Ireland was Paganus Hackett. An early record shows he witnessed an endowment to the Priory of Kilmainham about the year 1180. An Irish family of this name were established in Ireland by William de Haket who accompanied King John and was granted estates in Tipperary in the early
13th century. The form Hackett was first used by his descendants in the sixteenth century. When the sparse Irish population began to increase it became necessary to broaden the base of personal identification by moving from single names to a more definite nomenclature. The prefix MAC was given to the father’s christian name, or O to that of a grandfather or even earlier ancestor. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. The origin of
badges and emblems, are traced to the earliest times, although, Heraldry, in fact, cannot be traced later than the 12th century, or at furthest the 11th century. At first armorial bearings were probably like surnames and assumed by each warrior at his free will and pleasure, his object being to distinguish himself from others. It has long been a matter of doubt when bearing Coats of Arms
first became hereditary. It is known that in the reign of Henry V (1413-1422), a proclamation was issued, prohibiting the use of heraldic ensigns to all who could not show an original and valid right, except those ‘who had borne arms at Agincourt’. The College of Arms (founded in 1483) is the Royal corporation of heralds who record proved pedigrees and grant armorial bearings.

The surname of GRISWOLD was derived from the Old Norman ‘griss’ an occupational name meaning ‘a keeper of pigs’. The small villages of Europe, or Royal and Noble households, even large religious dwellings and monasteries, gave rise to many family names, which reflected the occupation or profession of the original bearer of the name. The name spelt ‘gris’ is also derived from a French spelling meaning “grey” or “grey-haired”.The name is also spelt GRISS, GRISTOLD, GRISSWOLD and GRISWOLT. Originally the coat of arms identified the wearer, either in battle or in tournaments. Completely covered in body and facial armour the knight could be spotted and known by the insignia painted on his shield, and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped garment which enveloped him. Early records of the name mention Eustace Gris, 1176
County Kent. Nicholas le Gris, was bailiff of Norwich in the year 1259. Robert le Gris, 1198 Norfolk. Johannes Gryse was listed in the Yorkshire Poll tax of 1379. During the Middle Ages, when people were unable to read or write signs were needed for all visual identification. For several centuries
city streets in Britain were filled with signs of all kinds, public houses, tradesmen and even private householders found them necessary. This was an age when there were no numbered houses, and an address was a descriptive phrase that made use of a convenient landmark. At this time, coat of arms came into being, for the practical reason that men went into battle heavily armed and were difficult to recognise. It became the custom for them to adorn their helmets with distinctive crests, and to paint their shields with animals and the like. Coats of arms accompanied the development
of surnames, becoming hereditary in the same way. Other records include Leticia Grise of
Yorkshire, who was recorded in the year 1317 and Thomas Grys of Sussex appears in the year
1327. Walter Griss was recorded in County Lancashire in 1337. In many parts of central and western Europe, hereditary surnames began to become fixed at around the 12th century, and have developed and changed slowly over the years. As society became more complex, and such
matters as the management of tenure, and in particular the collection of taxes were delegated to special functionaries, it became imperative to distinguish a more complex system of nomenclature to differentiate one individual from another.
