The surname Hanshoh belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States.
