What a lot of 'House's'!! My Grandfather, 'House', lived in Saskatchewan. My understanding is that the family moved from Ontario, 1800's. Apparently, an ancestor moved to Ont. from New York State during the Loyalist movement. Where they arrived from before that, I have no idea. I do know that it was only 1 son of a larger family that moved West. According to the below comments, familes stayed in the U.S. during/after the Revolution. Up until about the 1980's, Western ph.directories did not hold many surnames of the House name; now.... from Sask.,Alberta,into B.C., there are many by the last name 'House' (eg. In 1993, there were 2 listings for the House name in Victoria, B.C.; now at least 20. The same goes for Calgary, Alberta. Just as in the 'old days', many people moved West in search of work). From Ontario to Nfld, the House name was quite common; from 'this' family of House, I ahd heard the name was possibly of Dutch origin. 'House's all over Europe, mud or castles!
I am desperately trying to trace my family history. No one in my family has any records of our past and it is something I have always wanted to do. My name is Paul House and my family is from Franklin, TN and the surrounding areas. Does anyone have any suggestions of places for me to start? Ancestry.com, other sites, etc.? Any suggestions you have would be much appreciated. Thank you!
My Grandmother was a House before she married an she had family in Franklin Tn ..We visited there once.
My surname comes directly from Richard de la Maison (ie. of the house). He came to England during the norman conquest. We are not sure where in France he came from yet. I think the surname of House is a hard one to put a history to being that it is likely a location or position reference so will change by family line.
I do not understand how your HOUSE surname history, could be so limited. My House were formally HAUS from the Rhine area a Germany, They came through Pennsylvania, to North Carolina.Marx Haus was on of the family who settled in Mecklenburg, Co, NC in the 1760's. Yet, you did not even mention those thousands of House (Haus) descendents from Germany?!?!
My surname is House by marriage and my understanding of the origin of the surname is it is a Viking name Hus. I have an interest in Family history and have researched mine and my husbands families to the 1700s. Unfortunately unless you had wealth, property or title it is very difficult to get any further back if you are an ordinary working person as the information to prove these are your ancestors is not there. You need to prove your ancestors by original documentation.

My maiden name is also House. I find this interesting because on Ancestry.com I find that I am a descendant from King John Lackland, brother of King Richard. I thought it came from being from the house of a royal family, i.e. House of Windsor (Queen Elizabeth II) and currently the German House of Hohenzolern. I found it by looking up my 2xGreat Grandfather, Henry Clay House who rode with Buffalo Bill Cody and fairly easy to trace back and it is marked as "of note" of something thereof. Wiki has a list of royal names: http://theroyal.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_royal_houses It would be great if this could be verified as I heard it was when someone married a German prince or something to unite the kingdoms but I don't know how true that is.
For those searching for House origins, please come along to www.howesfamilies.com, the One-Name Study for our name. Maybe we can help each other . . .
Looking for information regarding Gilmore & Melvina (Benge) House, parents of Virginia (Jenny) House who married Thomas Bedford Day. (Jenny is my great grandmother.)

House is my last name. My family is from the Ga area.
mine too ... wld love to know more about where it comes from !
Don't know where my family got the name from because I'm black and the only people I see outside of my family who obtains the same name is white. Im guessing it was a slave name given to my family that we kept.
Hi Anthony, You could be very correct... My family is from Canada; BUT, we've often wondered about ancestry... Yes, we are 'Caucasian', BUT, my own Dad was very dark, with 'loose' curls; his only brother, blonde! BUT! My cousins, although 2 redheads, 1 blond... had DEFINITE 'tight' curls, just as any African-American or African... No doubt there was some 'intermingling' somewhere!! (We 'go back to 1700's, from N.Y. to Canada... so many possibilites, underground railroad, intermarriage, and sadly, likely slavery too. Good luck, and keep searching!
My grandfather Robert House had 7 brothers. They all grew up in Springfield SD. My great grandfather was Orin James House. He was a professor in Springfield. I'm certain I have cousins given that my grandfather had 7 brothers but have never connected.
My grandmother was a Flora Payne, nee House, from Port Saunders, Newfoundland, Canada not far from where the Viking Digs were discovered. I wonder if there were any connections as there are some references to the House name being connected to the Vikings.
