Helms Genealogy & History

Helms as a surname first described someone who worked as a herdsman or a hat-maker. Derived from Old English "helm" meaning covering (as in "helmet"), the derivation of helmet-maker seems particularly consistent the crest and coat of arms, both of which have silver pheons, silver symbolizing peace/sincerity and the spear-head symbolizing readiness for battle. In England, the Helms family history included a feudal manor in Surrey, with the variations Helm and Helme more typically found in Lancashire and Yorkshire; the suffix "s" denotes the genitive "of" (for example, of the place Helm). American Helms genealogy traces back to Dutch immigrants to New Netherlands in 1642.
