The name Haywithy is an old Anglo-Saxon name. It comes from when a family lived 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 Haywithy belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Haywithy Early Origins



The surname Haywithy 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Haywithy family emigrate to North America: George Haworth ( c. 1676-1724), who arrived from Gambleside, Lancashire in 1699; John Haworth, aged 28, settled in New York in 1820; James, John, and Richard Haworth arrived in Philadelphia between 1820 and 1860..

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.
