Hozier is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a person who makes or sells stockings and socks. The surname Hozier is derived from the Old English word hosa, which means hose. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

This passage may be interesting to the reader: "The hosier of modern times sells stockings and other soft 'under clothing.' Two hundred years ago, [1600's] the hosiers of London were those tailors who sold ready-made clothes; but the original hosier was he who encased the 'nether man' in leather, covered both the foot and leg, and was called a hose. " [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hozier arrived in North America very early: ??? Hosier who sailed to Virginia in 1623; Samuel Hosier to Salem, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hosier to Maryland in 1718; Ann Hosier to Virginia in 1732.
