Thus, the surname Hasellhurst 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.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hasellhursts to arrive on North American shores: 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.
