Hezzlegrove History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Early Origins of the Hezzlegrove family

The surname Hezzlegrove was first found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor in the West Riding. 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 shire about the 13th century.

Migration of the Hezzlegrove family to the New World and Oceana

In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hezzlegroves to arrive on North American shores: W. F. Hazlegrove, who was on record in the census of Ontario of 1871.
