The story of the Haucrough family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The Haucrough name comes from a place named by these Vikings and was used by a family who lived in Halcro, in South Ronaldsey, Orkney. The place-name is taken from the place-name Halcro in Caithness, where the family originated.

Haucrough Early Origins



The surname Haucrough was first found in Caithness (Gaelic: Gallaibh), the northern tip of Scotland, a Norse/Viking controlled region from the 9th century, which became the Earldom of Caithness, in Scotland where they held a family seat from ancient times, and where family tradition claims that they are descended from the natural son of King Sverrir of Norway. At early times the family migrated to South Ronaldsay where they gave their name to the lands called Halcro. Today Halcrow is a hamlet in northern Manitoba, Canada, but the origin of the place is unknown.

Haucrough Spelling Variations



In the Middle Ages, no real standards were established to judge the accuracy of spelling and translation. They were done mostly by ear and intuition, and enormous numbers of spelling variations were the unsurprising result. Haucrough has appeared as Halcroe, Halcro, Halcrow, Halcrough, Hacro, Hawcro, Halkrawe, Haucro and many more.

The Great Migration



North America was far from Britain's oppressive monarchy. There, the Scottish found land and freedom, and many even the opportunity to pay back England in the American War of Independence. This brave heritage survives today largely in Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Research into passenger and immigration lists has brought forth evidence of the early members of the Haucrough family in North America: Magnus Halcro who settled in Savannah, Georgia in 1774; with his wife Elizabeth and son Hugh; William Hacro settled in Virginia in 1653.
