An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Headand is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in the parish of Headon, which is in the diocese of Southwell in Nottinghamshire, or in the parish of Hedon, which is in the diocese of York in Yorkshire. The surname Headand belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Headand Early Origins



The surname Headand was first found in Nottinghamshire and Yorkshire, where evidence suggests they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Headands to arrive in North America: Sarah Heading, who sailed to Barbados in 1659; Richard Hedon to New England in 1684; William Heddon to Georgia in 1753; E. Hedding to New York at the age of 70 in 1823.
