The Anglo-Saxon name Haws comes from the Old French personal name Haueis and the Old German personal name Hadewidis, which literally means battlewide. The surname Haws may also be derived from residence "at the haw", which refers to a garth, yard, or enclosure. In this case, Haws belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Haws Early Origins

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Haws family emigrate to North America:
