The earliest origins of the Haverstick surname date from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name reveals that an early member 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 Haverstick 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.

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 Haverstick or a variant listed above: Dr. D. Havers settled in New Orleans in 1822; John Havers arrived in Philadelphia in 1868.
