The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Hauschild came from the Old French personal name Haueis and the Old German personal name Hadewidis, which literally means battlewide. The surname Hauschild may also be derived from residence "at the haw", which refers to a garth, yard, or enclosure. In this case, Hauschild belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees.
The surname Hauschild was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from ancient times.
Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hauschild family name include Hawes, Hawe, Haugh, Haughes, Hause and others.

Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived.
