Hedworthay Early Origins



The surname Hedworthay was first found in Yorkshire. However, the township of Monkton in Durham had an early significance to the family. "This place was a very early possession of the monastery of Jarrow, whence the name is derived; and afterwards was the property of the Hedworths of Harraton, for the alienation of which, John Hedworth had licence in the first year of Bishop Sever, 'in order to raise certain trusts and uses therein.' " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
And the parish of Southwick in Durham is also of particular interest to the family. "The estate was once the property of a family named Suthwyk, and afterwards formed part of the possessions of the Hedworths." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Hedworthay Spelling Variations



The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Hedworthay has been spelled many different ways, including Hedworth, Hedworthy, Headworth, Headworthy, Headword, Headward and many more.

The Great Migration

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 Hedworthays to arrive in North America: Alexander Hedworth, aged 42, who arrived at Ellis Island, in 1919; Doris Hedworth, aged 9, who arrived at Ellis Island from S. Shielas, England, in 1916.
