Hockney is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in Hackney, a place-name from Middlesex. The exact location of Hackney is in what is now Greater London. The place-name is derived from the Old English personal name Haca, and the suffix eg, which meant "island or dry ground in a marsh." The place-name was rendered as Hakaneia in 1198, and is Hackney today.

Hockney Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hockney family name include Hackney, Hackny, Hackeney, Hackneyman and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hockney surname or a spelling variation of the name include:

Hockney Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Albert Hockney, who landed in Iowa in 1885

Hockney Settlers in Australia in the 19th Century

  • Robert Sallet Hockney, aged 33, a labourer, arrived in South Australia in 1853 aboard the ship "Olivia"
