Hand Genealogy & History

Hand is an English surname with two main origins. Firstly, it may come from the Old English hand, indicating someone with large hands or an occupation that required their constant use, such as a sailor. This usage still exists today, as in the call �all hands on deck�, though that has spread to other workplaces as an announcement for general alertness. It might also be from the Saxon name Hans, from Johannes, from the Hebrew Yochan or John. Hand family history begins with Walter Handes, noted in the Pipe Rolls of Warwickshire in 1332. Famous members of Hand genealogy include long-time and influential federal judge Learned Hand.
