The Halliway name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived as inhabitants at the hollow-way or holy way. Halliway is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names.

Halliway Early Origins



The surname Halliway was first found in Middlesex at Holloway, a district in the parish of Islington, Finsbury division of the hundred of Ossulstone. Today, it is part of Greater London. There are a few different possible origins of the place name but the generally accepted origin is from the Old English words hol + weg which evolved to mean "the road with a hollow."

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Halliway were among those contributors:
