Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Havendyn is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the village of Haffenden in the south-eastern counties of Kent, around Canterbury, Cranbrook, Homewood, and Smarden, around Wadhurst in the county of Sussex.

Early Origins of the Havendyn family


The surname Havendyn was first found in Kent where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor at Tenterden and Smarden and at Halden Bugglesden in the north part of Boresile borough. The exact locality of the ancient domain remains obscure.

Migration of the Havendyn family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Havendyns to arrive in North America: John Havenden who landed in North America in 1750.
