Harsant (also spelt Harsent, Hersant, Hersent and Hursant) is a family name meaning 'army-truth' which originated from a Germanic tribe living in north western France.
The HARSANT family has spread in modern times like most families, moving to Australia, New Zealand, America, South Africa and other area's of England. But this family has a long connection to Suffolk, England.
I have not yet made a connection to this person but a Harsant was responsible for writting a book that is mentioned by the English Lottery Company. It is called The Book of Dreams.
Did you know that there was a Harsant Family Bible?
Then of course there is the life story of Ella Maud Harsant.
Finally of course there is the family murder!!
