One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Hacksaw has appeared include Hackinsall, Hackinshaw, Hackshall, Hackshaw, Hacksaw, Axshaw, Ackshaw, Ackenshaw, Ackensall, Haxshaw, Hackenshaw, Hakesalt and many more.

First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1189 when Geoffrey the Bowman was Lord of Hackensall an ancient parish of the city of Lancaster. Succeeding Geoffrey was Robert of Hacunsho who also held Perlo and Hamilton in 1250.

These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hacksaw arrived in North America very early:
