The Heglin surname is thought to come from the Norman female personal name, Agilina, originally of Germanic origin.

 More

The surname Heglin was first found in Bedfordshire (Old English: Bedanfordscir), located in Southeast-central England, formerly part of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia, where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 13th century when they held estates in that shire.

The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Heglin has been recorded under many different variations, including Eglin, Eglon, Egling, Eggling, Egland, Eglen, Eagland, Eaglin, Eaglon, Hegland, Heglin, Heglen, Hegling, Egolyn and many more.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Heglin or a variant listed above: Robert Eglan, who settled in Maryland in 1737; and James Egland, who arrived in New York, NY in 1823.
