Hare History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms


Origins Available: English , German , Irish , Scottish


The surname Hare was most likely originally a nickname for someone hare-like, perhaps a fast runner. It comes from the Old English word "hara," meaning "a hare."


Early Origins of the Hare family


The surname Hare was first found in Surrey, where Walter le Hare was on record in 1166, and again in 1171 in the Pipe Rolls for that County. Later some of the family branched to Stow-Bardolph in Norfolk where "the lands are the property of Sir Thomas Hare, Bart., whose seat, Stow Hall, is a handsome mansion finely situated. The church is chiefly in the later English style, with a square embattled tower; on the north side of the chancel is the mausoleum of the Hare family, in which are many splendid monuments."

Hare Spelling Variations


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 Hare include Hare, Hares, Hair and others.

Migration of the Hare family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hare or a variant listed above:
