    This long-established surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a status name for a bond tenant who was employed as a ploughman for a manor. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th Century "aecermann", a compound of "aecer", field, ploughed land, cognate with the Old Norse "akr", and "mann", man. On many medieval manors there were separate tenements held by "acremen" in return for ploughing service, and a quotation from "Lay le Freine" reads, "The foules up, and song on bough, And acremen yeld to the plough". Early examples of the surname include: Robert le Akerman (Essex, 1233); Roger le Acreman (Oxfordshire, 1273); and Hugh Akerman (Cambridgeshire, 1273). The "Historical English Dictionary", dated 1389, tells us that "both prestis and knightis mosten bicome acremen and heerdis". In the modern idiom the surname has four spelling variations: Ackerman(n), Akerman and Acreman. On August 15th 1568, Anna Ackerman and John Habet were married at St. Dionis Backchurch, London. A notable namebearer mentioned in the "National Biography" was Rudolph Ackermann who, in 1801, patented a method for making articles waterproof, and established art lithography in England (1817). A Coat of Arms granted to the Ackerman family in 1761 is described thus: Quarterly per fesse indented first and fourth gules, in chief a maunch argent, in base an acorn sprig or, second and 3rd or, three dragons' heads couped of the first. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of William Acreman, which was dated 1100, in the "Chartulary of Ramsey Abbey", Huntingdonshire, during the reign of King Henry 1, known as "The Lion of Justice", 1100 - 1135. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

      Thank you for the many hours you have spent gathering this data. I have been researching the ACKERMAN family, and connected that to your DAVY info. Philip James ACKERMAN m: Catherine Ellen DAVY. Philip was the son of Garret (Gerrit) H. ACKERMAN whose Father was Hendrick, son of Garret (Gerrid)(Gerrit) D. ACKERMAN @ Magdalena (Elena)(Lena) VAN VOORHEES. Gerret D's Father was David Abrams ACKERMAN. son of Abraham David ACKERMAN. Abraham was one of six children who arrived in New Amsterdam on the ship 'Vos', (the Fox) from the Netherland in 1662. It is believed that the children's Father, David, died aboard ship on the voyage over. That info might be of interest to Catherine @ Philip's descendants.
