The ancestry of the name Hassellhurst dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. 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 Hassellhurst 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.

Hassellhurst Early Origins



The surname Hassellhurst 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



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 Hassellhurst, or a variant listed above: Cuthbert Hayhurst settled in Pennsylvania in 1682 with his wife Mary and six children; Jane Hazelhurst settled with her husband and three children in Philadelphia in 1822.
