GROSSMAN Family History

This is an ancient German surname. Recorded in many forms including Gros, Gross, Grosse, Groz, Groos, all meaning big or large, and given as a surname to a large (or perhaps a small!) person, and compounds based upon Gross such as Grossbauer (Big farmer), Grooskopf (Big head), Grosman, Groseman and Grossman (the friend of Gross), Grossnickel (big Nicholas), this was a name of medieval origins. It was in most cases a name which may have originally meant literally what it says, or as in the case of Grossman for instance could indicate either a big man, or more likely a friend or servant of a person called Gross.
