The Haselhurst name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in one of the settlements called Hazelhurst in Lancashire, Surrey, or Sussex, or near any woodland noted for its hazel trees. Thus, the surname Haselhurst belongs to both the category of habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads, and to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.

Haselhurst Early Origins

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Haselhurst were among those contributors: Cuthbert Hayhurst settled in Pennsylvania in 1682 with his wife Mary and six children; Jane Hazelhurst settled with her husband and three children in Philadelphia in 1822.
