The Haradine name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Harrowden in Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.

Early Origins of the Haradine family


The surname Haradine was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat from ancient times. Harrowden is a one-street hamlet in Bedfordshire. Great Harrowden and Little Harrowden are parishes and villages in Northamptonshire that date back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where collectively they were known as Hargedone. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The place name literally means "hill of the heathen shrines or temples," from the Old English words "hearg" + "dun." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Ironically "Little" Harrowden has more inhabitants that "Great" Harroweden and that has been the case for more than 100 years. In the 15th century the manors of Great and Little Harrowden were held by Sir William Vaux who was slain at the Battle of Tewkesbury in 1471. Great Harrowden Hall was built between 1716 and 1719. The All Saints Church dates back to Norman times and is famous for its medieval Doom (painting.) There is also a brass to William Harrowden from the 16th century located there.

Migration of the Haradine family to the New World and Oceana


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 Haradine were among those contributors: Edward Harraden, who sailed to Massachusetts in 1635; Jabez Harraden, who came to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1836 and Alfred Harraden, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1845..
