The Martin Genealogy

The Martin Family is among the forty-nine "best families" selected by the American Historical-Genealogical Society for whom the Society has published family histories during the past few years. The Martin family has been prominent in the British Empire and in the United States, its members having played important roles in war and in peace. Family pride is a commendable trait and should be cultivated. All Martins have just cause to be proud of their family history and traditions.
In references No. 10 and No. 14 we find the following regarding the origin and meaning of the name Martin.

The surname, Martin, has its origin in the personal name made illustrious by St. Martin and was probably derived from the Latin “martius,” warlike, the characteristic quality of Mars, the god of war. Many places in Normandy were dedicated to St. Martin, and from one of these sprang the great family who came to England at the time of the Conquest under the name De Sancto Martino.

The surname is greatly in evidence in Ireland and Scotland, but its origin in Gaelic countries is usually different from that in England and on the continent, the Gaelic derivation being from the personal name Giolla Marthain, meaning “the servant or votary of St. Martin.” It is said that this Giolla Marthain was the ancestor of the Irish family of Martin, from whom so many of the Martins of America are descended.

The name of Martin is not only of frequent occurrence in the Old World, 7 but it became common in America from an early period, and may be found

among the early settlers of Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Virginia, and other colonies. The name is variously spelled, even in the records of the same family, as Martin, Martyn, Marten, Marttin, Marteen, Martain and Martine.

The data in this volume is gathered from reliable sources. We have selected what we consider the most important material. Many of the daughters, and sons for whom no issue was shown, have been omitted from the pedigrees. A missing symbol indicates that a name has been omitted. Those desiring further information are advised to consult the volumes men­tioned in the list of References.

The compiler hopes that, in producing this volume he is bringing to the Martin Family information which will be of interest and value to them, and that he is rendering an important service to the public. He and his associates will be glad to give their cooperation to members of the family who are inter­ested in having a complete genealogy of the family published.

Unless otherwise plainly shown, the persons in this volume whose names are accompanied by three figures are children of the immediately preceding persons bearing immediately preceding numbers. All persons in each group bearing the same letter as a part of their numbers, are directly related. The generations of the descendants of those bearing numbers of three figures are represented as follows. However, some of our material is published as copied from various records without rearrangement according to this system.

Generations 1st  2nd 3rd  4th  5th
Symbols   (1), etc. (A), etc. (a), etc. 1, etc. A, etc.
Generations   6th 7th  8th   9th   10th
Symbols   a, etc. (I), etc.  (i), etc. I, etc.  i, etc.
