According to a research that I read the name Sargeant is of English origin and its an old Anglo Saxon name. The family took on the name when one of the members was appointed as Sergeant or an officer of law.  The family with this name was first found to be living in Buckingham. However one thing to note is that names can originate from two different places as well.

My great grandfather (by marriage) last name was Sargeant and he was of English descent.
