The Hackwell name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in Hawkwell, in Essex. The place-name Hawkwell first appeared in the Domesday Book as Hacuuella. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English words haca, which meant "winding, wandering," and wella, which meant "spring" or "stream." As it is unlikely that a spring would wander, this place-name refers to a stream. Therefore, the surname Hackwell means "dweller by the winding stream."

Hackwell Early Origins



The surname Hackwell was first found in Essex, on the south-east coast of England, where they held a family seat from very early times.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hackwell were among those contributors:
