The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Haverkamp family have grown. The name Haverkamp was given to a member of the family who was a person associated with a male goat, perhaps through ownership of such an animal or a perceived physical or tempermental resemblance to that animal. The surname Haverkamp is derived from the Old English word hæfer, which means he-goat. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character.

Haverkamp Early Origins



The surname Haverkamp was first found in Norfolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Haverkamp Spelling Variations



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 Haverkamp family name include Havers, Haver and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. 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. Early immigrants bearing the Haverkamp surname or a spelling variation of the name include :
