The Anglo-Saxon name Hakewill comes from when the family resided 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 Hakewill means "dweller by the winding stream."

Hakewill Early Origins



The surname Hakewill 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hakewill or a variant listed above: John Hackwell, who sailed to Boston Massachusetts in 1635 at the age of eighteen.
