Hello, all! My Mann name is Scottish. Anyone in here related to Manns that settled in South Dakota after they made the big trip to America?
What a lot of Mann's we have here! I am fairly sure my Mann name is German although as far as I have traced back our routes lie in Britain spanning the south coast of England.
Hello, Always lots of interest in my family history an in tracing same we are rooted in Devon, England. I have family names an dates back to the early 16th century, mostly around Kenn, Devon. Noted some of the earlier variation of the name was"Man." Dave Mann
does anyone else hate it when people laugh at Ms. Mann
this definition is nothing short of nonsense! Mann is not an English name, it has Scythian roots, It is a Scythian Jatt tribe of which are spread over all Europe, and Northern India. In the UK Jats or Jutes as the were called in England were heavily in the county of Kent which prior to England being united as a country was known and Jut land. And the people that lived herewere call Jutes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHAT YOU ARE SELLING ISA UTTER NONESENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We were told my Manns came from Munich to escape persecution. The first one who came was a silversmith. He came to Bradford, Yorkshire, and the family later moved to Mixenden near Halifax. My grandfather told us that all the Manns in Mixenden were related. I assume he made that point as there are other Manns in the area who are not related and who have been here longer. I have searched and searched to find any record of one who came from Germany, let alone Munich, but had no success. Does this ring any bells with anyone?
Im an Australian "Mann" Great Great Granfather Johann Christian Mann emigrated from Prussia in 1846 - His hometown is now in Poland - so my line is German/Prussian/Polish

I have married into the Mann family and I am keen to get a crest / coat of arms for the family - can anyone let me know why there are so many to choose from (my maiden name only has one so never realised this problem!) there are three variations (so I can see) - three Goats, three Crowns or three lions on a shield with varying back ground colours red, white/black, yellow. - any suggestions or thought on this would be greatly appreciated.
I'm thinking about changing to back to original spelling Petermann
