Hakesly Early Origins



The surname Hakesly was first found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1246 when William de Hauckesey held estates in Lancashire being from Worcestershire.

Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries.
