The name Hearytige comes from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It was a name for a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Hearytige 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.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hearytige were among those contributors: 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..
