Early Origins of the Hackvil family
The surname Hackvil was first found in Herefordshire
at the parish of Eyton in the union of Leominster, hundred
of Wolphy. "The family of Hackluyt, the traveller and historian, had a mansion in this parish, and possessed the greater part of the land, in the reign of Elizabeth; his descendant sold the house and a portion of the estate, in 1640, to Robert Weaver, in whose family it has continued to the present time."

were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hackvil family name include Hackluit, Hackluyt, Hackluet, Hacklett, Hacklet, Hackvil, Hackville and many more.
