Early Origins of the Hasluck family
The surname Hasluck was first found in North Yorkshire
at Aislaby, a hamlet and civil parish near the town of Pickering. The place name dates back to the Domesday Book
of 1086 when it was listed as Asuluesbi. CITATION[CLOSE]

The place name literally means "farmstead or village of a man called Asulfr," from the Old Scandinavian personal name
+ "by." CITATION[CLOSE]

Aislaby is also a village and civil parish in the Scarborough district and finally Aislaby is a small village and civil parish on the north bank of the River Tees within the borough of Stockton-on-Tees in County Durham
. Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant
of the lands and village of Aislaby, held by Richard Surdeval, a Norman noble, who was recorded in the Domesday Book.
