The earliest origins of the Harrytige surname date from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name reveals that an early member was a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Harrytige is derived from the Old English word heritage, which in turn comes from the Old French words eritage and heritage. These words are derived from the Late Latin word heritagium, which comes from the word heres, which means heir.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Harrytige or a variant listed above: Roger Eritage, who sailed to Barbados in 1635; Richard Heritage to New Jersey in 1664; W.
