The name Hervedint came to England with the ancestors of the Hervedint family in the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hervedint family lived in Flintshire, Wales at Hawarden.

Hervedint Early Origins



The surname Hervedint was first found in Flintshire, Wales at Hawarden, a small village near the border of Cheshire and Wales. Legend has it that in the Church a statue of the Virgin Mary fell in 946, killing the wife of the Governor of the Castle. The statue was put on trial and condemned to death by drowning. The statue floated up the River Dee and washed up at Chester. Hawarden Castle, built much later, after the Hawardens had left, was occupied during the 19th century by William Gladstone, Prime Minister of England.

Hervedint Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Hervedint has been recorded under many different variations, including Hawarden, Hawardens, Hawerden, Harweden, Harveden, Harvedon and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hervedints were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Robert Harveden who landed in North America in 1705.
