Hack History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The Hack family name is linked to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from the baptismal name for the son of Haki, which was originally derived from the Scandinavian forename Haki or Hako. This Christian name was popular among the Viking settlers who landed on the shores of England during the 10th and 11th centuries.

Early Origins of the Hack family

The surname Hack was first found in Devon 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.

Hack Spelling Variations

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hack include Hack, Hache, Hach, Hacche and others.

Hack migration to the United States

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hack were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
