The origins of the Hasselhurst name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from 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 Hasselhurst 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.

Hasselhurst Early Origins



The surname Hasselhurst 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



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 Hasselhurst family emigrate to North America:
