The ancient roots of the Haradink family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Haradink comes from when the family lived in the village of Harrowden in Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.

Early Origins of the Haradink family


The surname Haradink 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 Haradink family to the New World and Oceana


At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Haradink arrived in North America very early: 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..
