Where did the English Hathcock family come from? What is the English Hathcock family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hathcock family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hathcock family history?

When the ancestors of the Hathcock family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Hatton, Cheshire. Another derivation of the name suggests that it comes from the Germanic personal name Hatto, which is composed of the element hadu, which means strife or contention. Although both are valid, time has confused the two definitions and historians now disagree on which is valid in any individual case.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Hathcock has been recorded under many different variations, including Hatton, Hattons, Hattyn, Hattins, Hattans and others.

First found in Cheshire where they had been granted lands by the Earl of Chester, soon after the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D.

To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hathcocks were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: John Hatton who settled in Virginia in 1613; seven years before the "Mayflower"; Charles Hatton settled in Barbados in 1680; Robert Hatton settled in Surinam in 1678.

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Nil conscire sibi
Motto Translation: To have a conscience free from guilt.
