Hartiker History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Hartiker is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived in Hardacre, Clapham, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The place-name is derived from the Old English personal name Hearda, and the Old English word æcer or the Old Scandinavian word akr, both of which mean "plot of cultivated land." The place-name as a whole means "Hearda's farmland." Another source claims the name was derived from the ancient Saxon word Hardgear meaning "a strong spear," and in this case it would not have any relationship to farmland.

Early Origins of the Hartiker family


The surname Hartiker was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name is derived from the ancient Saxon "Hardgear" meaning "a strong spear" and does not have any relationship to farmland.

Migration of the Hartiker family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Hartikers to arrive in North America: George Hardacre, who arrived in Maine in 1779.
