The present generation of the Hearehope family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the small hamlet of Harrup, in the county of Cheshire.

Early Origins of the Hearehope family


The surname Hearehope was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the manor of Harrup a small hamlet in Cheshire. Many historians have conjectured about the origin of this name, including definitions such as, an abbreviation of Harehope found in Northumberland, but this name is believed to be of an ancient Cheshire family which has held a family seat in that county for at least one thousand years.

Hearehope Spelling Variations


Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hearehope include Harrap, Harrop, Harehope, Harropp, Harrupp, Harupp, Haropp and many more.

Migration of the Hearehope family to the New World and Oceana


Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hearehope were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Thomas Harrop who settled in Annapolis Maryland in 1726; James Harrop settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1768; Hugh Harrop settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1834.
