Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in the village of Haddon which was in a number of places including Derbyshire, Dorset, Northampton and Roxburgh in Scotland. There is also a place called Hadden Hill in the county of Stafford. This place-name was originally derived from two Old English words Haeth, which means a heath, and dun which literally means a hill. Therefore the original bearers of the surname Haddand resided near or on a heather-covered hill.

Migration of the Haddand family to the New World and Oceana
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Haddand, or a variant listed above: James Hadden in Maryland in 1697 and later moved to Virginia; John Haddin arrived in Philadelphia in 1848; John and Margaret Haddon settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630.
