Early Origins of the Hateley family

The surname Hateley was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat at Hatley Park. They were conjecturally descended from Roger, a Norman noble, who, at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086, held his Lordship from the Count Alan, and also held Lordships in Ayslesbury in Buckingham, St. Edes in Huntingdon, and Coxton in Cambridgeshire.

Early rolls show Arnold Hatteleia in the Feet of Fines for Bedfordshire in 1198 and Agnes de Hatleye in the Subsidy Rolls for Worcerstershire in 1275. [1]

They joined the train of King David of Scotland in 1124 and were granted lands in Berwickshire and became a prominent Border Clan defending the eastern marches. "William de Hatteley, son of Sir Robert dictus de Hatteley and Matilda his wife, with the consent of his wife Emma, about 1230 granted to the monks of Kelso a right of way through his land of Mellerstan and permission to build a bridge over the Blackburn. Another Robert de Hetlye, who possessed lands in Faunes and Melockstan, is probably Robert de Hattely who in 1270 witnessed a charter by William de Alwentum (Alwinton) to the Abbey of Melrose of the lands of Halsinton. John de Hetlyn and Alexander de Hetlye appear in 1292, and Alexander de Hateleye rendered homage [to King Edward I of England] at Elgyn en Morreve, 1296. " [2]
