The ancestors of the Hearytage family lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Hearytage was a name given to a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Hearytage is derived from the Old English word heritage, which in turn comes from the Old French words eritage and heritage. These words are derived from the Late Latin word heritagium, which comes from the word heres, which means heir.

Hearytage Early Origins



The surname Hearytage was first found in Oxfordshire, where they held a family seat from very early times.

Hearytage Spelling Variations



Hearytage has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Many variations of the name Hearytage have been found, including Herytage, Heritage, Eritage, Erytage and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hearytages to arrive on North American shores: Roger Eritage, who sailed to Barbados in 1635; Richard Heritage to New Jersey in 1664; W. Heritage to San Francisco, Cal. in 1850 and Mary Houlihan Heritage to Nova Scotia in 1838..
