Haggerstone Early Origins



The surname Haggerstone was first found in Northumberland at Haggerston, a township, in the parochial chapelry of Ancroft, union of Berwick-upon-Tweed, Islandshire. The place name was listed as Agardeston in 1196 and literally meant "estate of a family called Hagard," from the Middle English or Old French surname + "tun." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Mills, A.D., Dictionary of English Place-Names. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1991. Print. (ISBN 0-19-869156-4)
The earliest record of the surname was "Robert de Hagrestone, Lord of Hagreston in 1399, although a Robert de Hagardeston occurs in 1312. It has been supposed that this family is of Scottish extraction." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Shirley, Evelyn Philip, The Noble and Gentle Men of England; The Arms and Descents. Westminster: John Bower Nichols and Sons, 1866, Print.
Another reference states: "This place, which contains a number of scattered houses, gave name to a family by whom it was held at a very early period, and of whom Thomas Haggerston was colonel of the famous Northumberland regiment in the service of Charles I., and was created a Baronet by that king in 1643. Haggerston Castle is an old family mansion, built on the site of a more ancient castle, which was burnt down in 1618. " [3]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
The original Haggerston Castle was in fact first mentioned on this site in 1311 when Edward II visited the castle and again in 1345. It was granted a licence (1343-1334) to crenellate by Edward III. There is another local named Haggerston, now a place in the London Borough of Hackney, but this local has no relationship with the surname.
