An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The present generation of the Hasleham family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the village of Haslam, in the county of Lancashire. This place-name was originally derived from the Old English word haesel-hamm, which simply refers to a hazel-wood farm.

Hasleham Early Origins



The surname Hasleham was first found in Derbyshire where they seated from very ancient times, some say, before the Norman Conquest of England by Duke William of Normandy in 1066.

Hasleham Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hasleham include Haslam, Hasslam, Haselham, Hasselham, Hasleham and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hasleham were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: John Buckley Haslam, who settled in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1818; followed by Abraham, Francis and James Haslam in 1832; James H. Haslam settled there in 1840.
