Harriden History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Harriden first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the village of Harrowden in Northamptonshire and Bedfordshire.

Early Origins of the Harriden family


The surname Harriden 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.
