Where did the English Hayworth family come from? What is the English Hayworth family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hayworth family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hayworth family history?The name Hayworth belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in or near the settlement of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Hayward's Heath in Sussex is another possible origin of the name. The surname Hayworth belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hayworth include Haworth, Howarth and others.
First found in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Today Haworth is a rural village within the City of Bradford, in West Yorkshire, best known by the vicarage and former residence of the Brontė sisters. Their father was the vicar. The Lancashire branch originated at Haworth in the Parish of Rochdale, Salford Hundred. One of the first records of the name was Robert de Haworth, Abbot of Stanlaw Abbey, resigned after having served 24 years as Abbot in 1292. Robert de Hawrth was listed in the Yorkshire Pipe Rolls. Alicia de Haworth was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. The same reference also lists Johannes Haueworth and Johannes de Haworth.

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hayworth were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:

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: Quod ero spero
Motto Translation: I hope that I shall be.
The Hayworth Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Hayworth Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
