The Gaelic name used by the Hasson family in ancient Ireland was O hOsain, which is possibly derived from the word "os," which means deer.
The surname Hasson was first found in County Londonderry (Irish: Doire), a Northern Irish county also known as Derry, in the province of Ulster, where the surname is still the found today.
Individual scribes in the Ireland during the Middle Ages would often record a person's name various ways. How the name was recorded depended on what that particular scribe believed the proper spelling for the name pronounced to him was. Spelling variations revealed in the search for the origin of the Hasson family name include Hassan, Hassen, Hasson, Hason, O'Hassan, Hassane, O'Hessan and many more.

The English-ruled Ireland of the late 18th and 19th centuries featured a rapidly increasing population and an agricultural-based economy. This combination proved to be disastrous in the 1840s after a couple of failed potato harvests. Thousands died of disease and starvation, and thousands more left the country, often bound for North Ameri ca. Those that survived the journey to North America were put to work building the bridges, canals, roadways, and railways needed for the development of an industrial society. Those Irish, although often despised by those already established in North American cities and towns, played an instrumental role in making Canada and the United States the powerful and wealthy nations that they are today. An examination of early immigration and passenger lists has shown many immigrants bearing the name Hasson:
