Hackney History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Hackney surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in Hackney, a place-name from Middlesex. The exact location of Hackney is in what is now Greater London. The place-name is derived from the Old English personal name Haca, and the suffix eg, which meant "island or dry ground in a marsh." The place-name was rendered as Hakaneia in 1198, and is Hackney today.

Migration of the Hackney family to the New World and Oceana


A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
