Early Origins of the Howxley family


The surname Howxley was first found in Worcestershire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1246 when William de Hauckesey held estates in Lancashire being from Worcestershire.

On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Howxley or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
