The ancient roots of the Hazlerigg family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Hazlerigg comes from when the family lived in the West Riding of Yorkshire in the village of Hesselgreave.

Hazlerigg Early Origins



The surname Hazlerigg 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]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hazlerigg arrived in North America very early:
