The Anglo-Saxon name Hoose comes from when its first bearer worked as a person employed "at the house"; in most cases, this was a religious house or convent. The surname Hoose is derived from the Old English word hus, which means house. In some cases, the name Hoose may be af form of the surname Howes.

Hoose Early Origins



The surname Hoose was first found in Berkshire, where the family held a family seat from ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hoose Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hoose include House, Howse, Howes, Hoose, Hows, Houser, Hooser and others.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hoose or a variant listed above:
