The name Hasselbank has a long Anglo-Saxon heritage. The name comes from when a family lived in one of a variety of similarly-named places. The settlement of Heselden is in Durham, while Haselden is in Sussex. Haslingden is in Lancashire, Hazeldon Farm is in Wiltshire, and Hazelton is in Gloucestershire. The surname Hasselbank belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



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. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Hasselbank, or a variant listed above: William Hassleton, who came to Barbados in 1679; William Hazledine settled in New England in 1775; Charles Hazeltine settled in Philadelphia in 1774; John Hazelton settled in New York State in 1811.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Pro aris et focis
Motto Translation: For our altars and our homes
