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 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 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!
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!
