The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of England produced the name of Hoare. It was given to a person who had grey hair or appeared aged. A broad and miscellaneous class of surnames, nickname surnames referred to a characteristic of the first person who used the name. They can describe the bearer's favored style of clothing, appearance, habits, or character. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Alternatively, the name could have been Norman in origin. In this case, it was derived from the "Norman-French pronunciation of Aure, with an aspirate. The name Aure, Alre, or Auré was a Breton name, derived from Auray, in Bretagne, of which the family were hereditary Castellans." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Another source claims the name was from Ore in Sussex and literally meant "dweller by the bank" from the Old Egnlish word "ora." [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hoare arrived in North America very early:
