The Hawtin surname appears to have arisen from at least two distinct sources. It is thought to have come from the Old French word "hautain" meaning "haughty," and was a nickname which in turn became a surname. It is also thought to have derived from the Old English "hall" + "thane," which was an occupational name for someone who worked in the hall of a feudal lord.

Hawtin Early Origins



The surname Hawtin was first found in Norfolk where the first on record is a Walter Halteyn listed in the registers of St. Benet of Holme 1138-40. The same volumes list a Theobal Hauthein or Halpein in 1153-68; while Eborard Halthein was recorded in neighboring Suffolk in 1146-75. In circa 1210-1220, a Robert Hawten or Hawethirn was the Constable of Banbury Castle, Oxfordshire.

Hawtin Spelling Variations



Norman surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. The frequent changes in surnames are largely due to the fact that the Old and Middle English languages lacked definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England, as well as the official court languages of Latin and French, also had pronounced influences on the spelling of surnames. Since medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, rather than adhering to any specific spelling rules, it was common to find the same individual referred to with different spellings. The name has been spelled Hawten, Hawtin, Hawtayne and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families emigrated to North American colonies in order to escape the political chaos in Britain at this time. Unfortunately, many English families made the trip to the New World under extremely harsh conditions. Overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the stormy Atlantic. Despite these hardships, many of the families prospered and went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the United States and Canada. Early North American immigration records have revealed a number of people bearing the name Hawtin or a variant listed above: Richard Hawten, who came to Virginia in 1643; Ann Hawtin, who came to Maryland in 1664; Edward Hawton, who settled in Barbados or Jamaica in 1691; Joseph Hawton, who came to Maryland in 1728.
