An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The ancestors of the bearers of the Hoxie family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in the settlement of Hawkshaw in the county of Lancashire. The surname Hoxie belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Hoxie Early Origins



The surname Hoxie was first found in Lancashire at Hawkshaw, a village, now in the Metropolitan Borough of Bury, in Greater Manchester. Hawkshaw was also a village in Peebleshire but was destroyed when the Fruid Reservoir was constructed in 1963.

Hoxie 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 Hoxie include Hawkshaw, Hawkeshaw, Hawkshore, Hoxie 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 Hoxie or a variant listed above:
