The ancestors of the name Hatwell date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in southeastern England mainly in the counties of Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire where they were found since the early Middle Ages. The name is toponymic; that is, it is descriptive of the place where the original bearer lived. Literally the name is derived from the Old English atwell, meaning dweller at the well.

Hatwell Early Origins



The surname Hatwell was first found in south eastern England mainly in the counties of Oxfordshire and Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat for many, many centuries. They are recorded as possessing estates before the advent of the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. but many of them were lost to their Norman overlords by forfeit. The Eatwell variant is thought to be related to a Hugo de Hetewelle, listed in 1187 in the Pipe Rolls for Derbyshire.
