Hackville Early Origins



The surname Hackville 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."

Hackville Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Hackville are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Hackville include: Hackluit, Hackluyt, Hackluet, Hacklett, Hacklet, Hackvil, Hackville and many more.
