Hastie History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The Strathclyde Briton clans of the Scottish/English Borderlands were the first to use the name Hastie. It is derived from "the name of an ancestor, 'the son of Anastasia,' from the nickname Anstie, abbreviated to Astie." [1]

Some sources note the Hastie variant could have been a nickname for someone who was "hasty, impatient." [2] [3] [4]

Early Origins of the Hastie family

The surname Hastie was first found in Lanarkshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Lannraig) a former county in the central Strathclyde region of Scotland, now divided into the Council Areas of North Lanarkshire, South Lanarkshire, and the City of Glasgow.

"Robert Hasty and John Hasty were tenants of Herthornhill in 1376, Thom Hasti witnessed an instrument of sasine dated 1478, and John Haisty was witness to another instrument of sasine in 1525. " [5]

Further to the south, the surname was typically found without the "H" prefix as the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 listed: Adam Asty, Kent; and John Asty, Norfolk. [1]

Norfolk had some early entries for the name too: Thomas Asty, Norfolk, 1374; and Robert Asty, rector of West Herling, Norfolk, 1410. [6]

Hastie Spelling Variations

The variation in the spelling of Medieval names is a result of the lack of spelling rules in the English language prior to the last few hundred years. Before that time, scribes spelled according to sound, often varying the spelling of name within a single document. Hastie has appeared as Hastie, Hasty, Asty and others.
