The Hadack name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the settlement of Haydock in the parish of Winwick in Lancashire. The name, pronounced Haddock, belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Early Origins of the Hadack family
The surname Hadack was first found in Lancashire at Haydock, a township, in the parish of St. Thomas in Ashton-in-Makerfield, union of Warrington, hundred of West Derby. "The manor was held jointly by the families of Holland and Haydock, so long as the former had any estates in Lancashire. In the reign of Edward III., Gilbert de Eydock, or Haidoc, had a licence for imparking Haydock; and from this feudal proprietor descended Sir Gilbert de Haydock, whose daughter and heiress married Sir Peter Legh, of Lyme, ancestor of Thomas Legh, Esq., of Lyme Hall, Cheshire, the present lord of the manor and owner of the whole property. "

The Lancashire Feet of Fines recorded Edmund de Haydok, 1339. 
"The Haydocks, who are most numerous in the Blackburn district, take their name from the township of Haydock. An old gentle family of this name held the manor of Hesandford or Pheasantford in the 16th, 17th, and 18th centuries; there were four generations of Simon Haydocks. James Haydock was a Liverpool bailiff in 1507; and there was a Sir Gilbert de Haydock of this county in the time of Henry V."

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.
