The ancestors of the name Hawxwel date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain.

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 Hawxwel or a variant listed above: Humfry Axall, who sailed to New England in 1678; and Thomas Axall to America in 1769.
