Benjamin Genealogy & History

Benjamin, an English/French patronymic Christian surname, is based on the ancient Hebrew given name Benjamin, meaning "son of the right hand". Hebrew names became popular in England after the 12th-century Crusades. Benjamin (1554-1443 BC), the last of Jacob's twelve sons, was founder of one of the Ten "Lost Tribes". In English Benjamin family history, the name was most numerous in Berkshire, Wiltshire and Cambridge prior to 1250, with the first record as Beniamin in 1166 in Norfolk. American Benjamin genealogy begins in Boston in 1632. The Benjamin coat of arms is a gold and black diagonal cross (saltire) with five rings (annulets).
