Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Hayhoe is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in or beside an enclosed region. The surname Hayhoe originally derived from the Old English word hegham which referred to an enclosed dwelling.

Hayhoe Early Origins



The surname Hayhoe was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
