Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Harowsmork include Arrowsmyth, Arrowsmith, Arrowsmythe, Arrowsmithe and others.

Migration of the Harowsmork family to the New World and Oceana

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Harowsmork or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Arrowsmith who settled in America in 1718; followed by John in 1734; and Martha in 1737; Thomas Arrowsmith settled in Virginia in 1670; Daniel Arrowsmith settled in Savanna, GA. in 1865..
