The surname Hackshaw was 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.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hackshaw include Hackinsall, Hackinshaw, Hackshall, Hackshaw, Hacksaw, Axshaw, Ackshaw, Ackenshaw, Ackensall, Haxshaw, Hackenshaw, Hakesalt and many more.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hackshaw or a variant listed above:

Hackshaw Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Cornelius Hackshaw, who arrived in Oregon in 1859

Hackshaw Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • William Hackshaw arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "Hermione" in 1880
