The ancestors of the Hawardend family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Flintshire, Wales at Hawarden.

Hawardend Early Origins



The surname Hawardend was first found in Flintshire, Wales at Hawarden, a small village near the border of Cheshire and Wales. Legend has it that in the Church a statue of the Virgin Mary fell in 946, killing the wife of the Governor of the Castle. The statue was put on trial and condemned to death by drowning. The statue floated up the River Dee and washed up at Chester. Hawarden Castle, built much later, after the Hawardens had left, was occupied during the 19th century by William Gladstone, Prime Minister of England.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Hawardend arrived in North America very early: Robert Harveden who landed in North America in 1705.
