Hause History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The Anglo-Saxon name Hause comes from the Old French personal name Haueis and the Old German personal name Hadewidis, which literally means battlewide. The surname Hause may also be derived from residence "at the haw", which refers to a garth, yard, or enclosure. [1]

Another source presumes that the name was derived from "dweller by the enclosure", from the Old English "haga" or Old Norse "hagi." "Hawe is clearly a pet-form of some common name, but of what it is difficult to decide. It may be for Old English for 'Hafoc.' " [2]

Early Origins of the Hause family

The surname Hause was first found in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 where we found Alan del Hawes, Cambridgeshire; John de la Hawe, Huntingdonshire; Peter in le Hawe, Kent; Reginald filius Hawise, Cambridgeshire; Richard Hawyse, Oxfordshire; and Hawis de Stanweye, Norfolk. [1]

In the early years, the name was used as both a forename and surname as seen by this entry in the Assize Rolls for Cheshire in 1286: Hawe de Bolinton. And more often than not, the name was used in a singular form as in William and Thomas Hawe who were listed in the Susidy Rolls of 1275 in Worcestershire. [2]

Early Norfolk records showed Maurice atte-Hawe, was Rector of Frethorp, Norfolk in 1349 and William atte-Hawe, was Rector of Newton, Norfolk in 1362. [3]

In the far south and west, in the parish of Stratton, Cornwall we found this interesting entry for the family: "Towards the conclusion of the fourteenth century, these estates were carried by an heiress to Sir Richard Haweis, whose daughter married, first, Sir John Tresilian, chief justice of the King's Bench, and, then Sir, John Coleshill, to whom Guy de Blanchminster rector of Lansalloes, released in 1393, all right in the manors of Stratton and Binnamy. From this family they were carried by an heiress to a younger branch of the Arundells, which becoming extinct, they were divided among its numerous representatives." [4]

United States Hause migration to the United States +

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hause arrived in North America very early:
