The ancestors of the Hakewil surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in Hawkwell, in Essex. The place-name Hawkwell first appeared in the Domesday Book as Hacuuella. Further research revealed that the name is derived from the Old English words haca, which meant "winding, wandering," and wella, which meant "spring" or "stream." As it is unlikely that a spring would wander, this place-name refers to a stream. Therefore, the surname Hakewil means "dweller by the winding stream."

Hakewil Early Origins



The surname Hakewil was first found in Essex, on the south-east coast of England, where they held a family seat from very early times.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Hackwell, who sailed to Boston Massachusetts in 1635 at the age of eighteen.
