词源(Etymology)

From earlier hem, from Middle English hem, from Old English heom (them, dative) of hie,[1] originally a dative plural form but in Middle English coming to serve as an accusative plural as well. Cognate with Dutch hun (them), German ihnen (them).

Now often treated as a form of them, which however derives from Old Norse rather than Old English.
