The name Hazlewood has a long Anglo-Saxon
heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in the village of Hazelwood in the county of Derbyshire.
The surname Hazlewood was first found in Salop where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest
and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Spelling variations in names were a common occurrence before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago. In the Middle Ages, even the literate spelled their names differently as the English language incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other European languages. Many variations of the name Hazlewood have been found, including Haslewood, Haselwood, Hazlewood, Hazelwood and others.
