The ancient roots of the Haddow family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Haddow comes from when the family 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.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Haddow arrived in North America very early: Henry Haddock who settled in New England in 1805; William Haddock settled in New England in 1740; Henry, James, and Joseph Haddock arrived in Philadelphia between 1805 and 1840..
