Jernigan Genealogy & History

Jernigan has its roots in the French word gernigon or Old Teutonic gerwig, denoting spear and warrior; thus this is an occupational name for a mercenary. Some of the different spellings include Jenningan, Jernigan, Jernygham, Jernegan, and Jenningham. The family motto is virtue is the support of life, and the crest is a falcon with its wings unfurled. Jernigan family history mentions that Thomas, Ellen, and Mary Jermegan were the first of the family to migrate to Maryland in 1637. Some members of the Jernigan genealogy are Christian singer-songwriter Dennis Jernigan; blind civil rights activist Norman Kenneth Jernigan; and scientist and NASA astronaut Tamara E. Jernigan.
