The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Haukewel come from when the family resided in the settlement of Hackinsall in Lancashire, in Hauxwell in the North Riding of Yorkshire, or in a now-lost place called Hawkeswell in Sevington in Kent. The surname Haukewel belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Haukewel Early Origins



The surname Haukewel was first found in Suffolk, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Haukewel or a variant listed above: Humfry Axall, who sailed to New England in 1678; and Thomas Axall to America in 1769.
