Hazellrigg is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hazellrigg family once lived in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the village of Hesselgreave.

Hazellrigg Early Origins



The surname Hazellrigg was first found in Northumberland where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Wotteslade. In 1280, King Edward 1st of England also granted to this north country Clan the Manor of Yetham Corbet. Simon de Hasilrig was progenitor of this distinguished family. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

But by the late 15th century, some of the family were found at Humberstone in Leicestershire. "The manor [of Humberstone] was granted by the Conqueror to Hugh de Grentemaisnel, and was held as part of the honour of Leicester, in 1474, by Sir William Haselrigge." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hazellrigg Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hazellrigg family name include Haselrigg, Haselrigge, Hasselrigg, Hasselrigge, Haslerigg, Haslerigge, Hazelrigg, Hazelrigge, Hazellrigg, Hazlerigg, Hazlerigge, Hazelrig and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hazellrigg surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Thomas Hazelrigg, who was born in 1615 in England, and died around 1675 in Northumberland County, Virginia (date of arrival is unknown), as well as Edward Hazelrigg, who arrived in New York State in 1822..
