Hathway History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The generations and branches of the Hathway family share a name that has its roots in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name Hathway comes from the Old German personal names Hathuwic or Hadewic, or from the Old English personal name Heathuwig, which means war-warrior.

Early Origins of the Hathway family


The surname Hathway was first found in Gloucestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hathway Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hathway include Hathaway, Hatheway, Hathoway, Hathway and others.

Migration of the Hathway family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hathway or a variant listed above:
