The Haucrowe family name comes from a place named by the Viking settlers who arrived in the shores of Scotland in the Middle Ages. The Haucrowe name comes from someone having lived in Halcro, in South Ronaldsey, Orkney. The place-name is taken from the place-name Halcro in Caithness, where the family originated.

Haucrowe Early Origins



The surname Haucrowe 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.

The Great Migration



The colonies on the fertile east coast of North America soon had many farms run by Scots.
