Hatley Early Origins



The surname Hatley 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]

Hatley 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 Hatley include Hartley, Hartly and others.

The Great Migration



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 Hatley or a variant listed above:
