The name Haukir is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a hawker, or someone who held land in exchange for providing hawks to a lord. The surname Haukir is derived from the Old English word hafocere, which means falconer or hawker.

Haukir Early Origins



The surname Haukir was first found in Northumberland. The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 list some of the early variations of the name: John le Haueker in Wiltshire; and Hugh le Haukere in Cambridgeshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Haukir or a variant listed above: John Hawker arrived in the Leeward Islands in 1654; Timothy Hawker arrived in Barbados in 1685.
