Multiple Origins for the Surname Hatt


English


The name Hatt is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a person who made or sold hats. The surname Hatt is derived from the Old English word hætt, which means hat. Occupational names frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames. The surname Hatt may also be derived from residence by a hill, since the Old English word hætt, also means hill. Hathitch Farm and Hathouse Farm are both in Worcestershire, and may be sources of the surname Hatt.

Hatt Early Origins



The surname Hatt was first found in Dorset 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.

Hatt Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hatt include Hatt, Hat and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hatt were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
