The present generation of the Herewart family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in Lincolnshire. The name is derived from the Old English word har which means "grey" and the word wudu which means "wood."

Herewart Early Origins



The surname Herewart was first found in Lancashire at either Great Harwood or Little Harwood; and or in West Yorkshire at Harewood, all villages. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Herewart Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Herewart include Harwood, Harewood, Horwood, Whorwood, Herwood, Hereward, Harward and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Herewart were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Robert and Thomas Harwood who settled in Virginia in 1635; followed later by George Harwood in 1643.
