The name Haslehurst is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family 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 Haslehurst 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.

Haslehurst Early Origins



The surname Haslehurst was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat both before and after the Norman Conquest in the year 1066.

The Great Migration



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 Haslehursts to arrive in North America:
