The surname Flaxny is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is derived from "Flecknoe," the name of a hamlet in the parish of Wolfhampcote, Warwickshire.

Flaxny Early Origins



The surname Flaxny was first found in Warwickshire, where the hamlet of Flecknoe is located. It is likely that the name was first borne by landowners in this region. Saxon influence in England 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. However, many Saxon surnames survived, and the family name Flaxny was first referenced in the year 1221, when Richard de Flecho held estates in Warwickshire.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Flaxnys to arrive in North America: George Flecknoe, who was naturalized in Indiana at the end of the 19th century.
