The origins of the Haslerig name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the village of Hesselgreave.

Haslerig Early Origins



The surname Haslerig was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wotteslade. In 1280, King Edward 1st of England also granted to this north country Clan the Manor of Yetham Corbet. Simon de Hasilrig was progenitor of this distinguished family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

But by the late 15th century, some of the family were found at Humberstone in Leicestershire. "The manor [of Humberstone] was granted by the Conqueror to Hugh de Grentemaisnel, and was held as part of the honour of Leicester, in 1474, by Sir William Haselrigge." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Haslerig family emigrate to North America: Thomas Hazelrigg, who was born in 1615 in England, and died around 1675 in Northumberland County, Virginia (date of arrival is unknown), as well as Edward Hazelrigg, who arrived in New York State in 1822..
