The Anglo-Saxon name Haworth comes from when the family resided in or near the settlement of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Hayward's Heath in Sussex is another possible origin of the name. The surname Haworth belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Haworth Early Origins



The surname Haworth was first found in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Today Haworth is a rural village within the City of Bradford, in West Yorkshire, best known by the vicarage and former residence of the Brontė sisters. Their father was the vicar. Haworth dates back to 1209 when it was first listed as Hauewrth and literally meant "enclosure with a hedge," from the Old English words "haga" + "worth." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Lancashire branch originated at Haworth in the Parish of Rochdale, Salford hundred. One of the first records of the name was Robert de Haworth, Abbot of Stanlaw Abbey, resigned after having served 24 years as Abbot in 1292. Robert de Hawrth was listed in the Yorkshire Pipe Rolls. Alicia de Haworth was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. Johannes Haueworth and Johannes de Haworth were also listed on the same roll. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Quod ero spero
Motto Translation: I hope that I shall be.
