An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the Heddend surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the village of Haddon which was in a number of places including Derbyshire, Dorset, Northampton and Roxburgh in Scotland. There is also a place called Hadden Hill in the county of Stafford. This place-name was originally derived from two Old English words Haeth, which means a heath, and dun which literally means a hill. Therefore the original bearers of the surname Heddend resided near or on a heather-covered hill.

Heddend Early Origins



The surname Heddend was first found in Derbyshire, at either Nether Haddon or Over Haddon, both small villages. Looking back further, we found William Hadon listed in Normandy, France in the Magni Rotuli Scaccarii Normanniae (1180.) [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Haddon Hall is an English country house on the River Wye at Bakewell, Derbyshire that dates back to the 11th century when William Peverel, illegitimate son of William the Conqueror, held the manor of Nether Haddon in 1087.

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: James Hadden in Maryland in 1697 and later moved to Virginia; John Haddin arrived in Philadelphia in 1848; John and Margaret Haddon settled in Salem Massachusetts in 1630.
