Herring Crest and Family Coat of Arms

Herring Genealogy & History

Herring was originally, as expected, an occupational name referring to someone who caught or sold herring from the North Atlantic Ocean. Derived from Old French "hareng" and Old English "hering" and first found in Holland, Herring genealogy has many branches, including Haring, Haringen, Haringhoek, Haringshauen. Harinsma, Harinx, and Herrin. The English branch originated in Oxfordshire where they held a feudal manor, and other branches were in Germany. Herring family history in America traces to Virginia in 1642. The Herring coat of arms is a silver shield with three black fish hooks; while fish symbolize regal origins, fishhooks refer to the occupation.
