Early Origins of the Hatleigh family


The surname Hatleigh was first found in Bedfordshire at Cockayne Hatley a parish, in the union and hundred of Biggleswade which borders onto Cambridgeshire. One of the first on record there was Arnold de Hateleia who was listed in the Feet of Fines in 1198. There are two other Hatley locations: Hatley (St. George), a parish, in the union of Caxton and Arrington, hundred of Longstow; and Hatley East (St. Dennis), a parish, in the union of Caxton and Arrington, hundred of Armingford, all in Cambridgeshire. The word Hatley literally means "woodland clearing on the hill" from the Old English haett + leah. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Hatleigh family to the New World and Oceana

Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hatleigh or a variant listed above: Elizabeth Hartley, who settled in Virginia in 1655; Jeremy Hartley settled in Barbados in 1635; Thomas Hartley settled in Virginia in 1642; William Hartley settled in Virginia in 1623..
