Origins Available: German, Jewish


The Haase surname first began to be used in the German state of Bavaria, some time after the 12th century, when hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules, and names that were derived from locations became particularly common. The family name Haase is a local surname. Originally denoting the proprietorship of an estate or influence within a village, the German preposition von, which means from or of, used with local names, was taken as a mark of aristocracy. The surname Haase was given to someone who lived in Bavaria, where the family was closely identified in early medieval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history.

Haase Early Origins



The surname Haase was first found in Bavaria, where the family was closely identified in early mediaeval times with the feudal society which would become prominent throughout European history. The name would later emerge as a noble family with great influence, having many distinguished branches, and become noted for its involvement in social, economic and political affairs. The name originates from the German word "Hase," meaning rabbit. Chronicles first mention Ruediger Hase in Bavaria in 1173, Henrich Hase, the owner of the inn "zum Hase" in Basel in 1293, and the name Hass appears in Prague in 1363.

The Great Migration



The great European flow of migration to North America, which began in the middle of the 17th century and continued into the 20th century, was particularly attractive to those from Bavaria who wished to escape either poverty or religious persecution. For many Bavarian tenant farmers, the chance to own their own land was a major incentive. So the widespread colonization of the United States began in 1650, when many immigrants from Germany settled in pockets in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. In Canada, German settlement centered in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Among those of this surname listed in various historical records were:
