Hardel History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The Hardel surname is derived from the Old English words "heorot," which means "hart" and "hyll," meaning hill, and the surname no doubt comes from one of several places so named in England and Scotland. Harthill, in Southern Yorkshire, was given to William de Warrenne in 1086, as part of his reward for his role in the Norman Conquest.


Early Origins of the Hardel family


The surname Hardel was first found in Warwickshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066, But Saxon surnames survived.

Migration of the Hardel family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hardel or a variant listed above: Alexander Harthill and W.H. Harthill, who were both recorded in Toronto in the Ontario census of 1871; F. Henry Hartall, who was naturalized in Illinois in 1884.
