An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Haddon is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having 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 Haddon resided near or on a heather-covered hill.

Haddon Early Origins



The surname Haddon was first found in Derbyshire, at either Nether Haddon or Over Haddon, both small villages. Looking back further, we found William Hadon listed in Normandy, France in the Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae (1180.) [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Haddons to arrive in North America:
