Hobdy Early Origins



The surname Hobdy was first found in Kent where they held a family seat. 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 year 1469 when William Hobday appeared on the tax rolls for that shire.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hobdy were among those contributors:

Hobdy Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Mary Hobdy, who arrived in Maryland in 1668

Hobdy Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Thomas Hobdy, who landed in Pennsylvania in 1777
