Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a person who made or sold hats. The surname Hade is derived from the Old English word hætt, which means hat. Occupational names frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames. The surname Hade may also be derived from residence by a hill, since the Old English word hætt, also means hill. Hathitch Farm and Hathouse Farm are both in Worcestershire, and may be sources of the surname Hade.

Migration of the Hade family to the New World and Oceana
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 Hade arrived in North America very early:
