The surname Haslrigg 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. CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Haslrigg family to the New World and Oceana
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England
. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England
, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations.

County, Virginia (date of arrival is unknown), as well as Edward Hazelrigg, who arrived in New York State in 1822..
