The name Hackwill is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family 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 Hackwill means "dweller by the winding stream."

Hackwill Early Origins



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