Early Origins of the Hathelsey family


The surname Hathelsey was first found in North Yorkshire at Chapel Haddlesey, a village and civil parish about five miles from Selby. West Haddlesey and East Haddlesey are townships nearby. The villages dates back to c. 1030 when they were known Hathel-sae and probably derived their name from the Old English words "hathal" + "sae," collectively meaning "marshy pool in a hollow."

Migration of the Hathelsey family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Hathelseys to arrive in North America: John Attersley, who came to America in 1682; William Hattersley, who came to Maryland in 1763; Josiah Hattersley, who arrived in Maryland in 1775; Levi Hattersley, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1818.
