Hazeldine History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The Anglo-Saxon name Hazeldine comes from when the family resided in one of a variety of similarly-named places. The parishes of Cold Hesleton (Hesleden) and Monk Hesleton (Hesleden) are in Durham. Both date back to Saxon times when they were collectively known as Heseldene c. 1050 and literally meant "valley where hazels grow." 
Haslingden in Lancashire dates back to 1241 when it was known as Heselingedon and meant "valley where hazels grow."  Hazeldon Farm is in Wiltshire, and Hazelton is in Gloucestershire. The surname Hazeldine belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Early Origins of the Hazeldine family
The surname Hazeldine was first found in Sussex at ancient manor in or near Dallington.  The name is derived from the Old English words hoesel + denu, which mean "Hazel" + "valley."  Hazleton Abbey was an abbey in Gloucestershire.
Early rolls revealed Robert de Heseldene in the Assize Rolls for Surham in 1243; Alexander de Haselinden in Kirkstal, Yorkshire in 1258; Reginald de Haselden in the Hundredorum Rolls for Warwickshire in 1275; and William de Heseldenn in the Subsidy Rolls for Sussexin in 1296. 
In Somerset, early records there found: William de Haseldin; and Adam Haseldene, both listed 1, Edward III (during the first year of King Edward III's reign.) 
The Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 included: Willelmus de Hesledyn; and Jeppe de Hesilden as both hold lands there at that time.

The Hazeldine 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: Pro aris et focis
Motto Translation: For our altars and our homes
