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.

Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Hazlewood, or a variant listed above:
