The name Hugefard first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the old village of Hickford, Shropshire.

Early Origins of the Hugefard family


The surname Hugefard was first found in Shropshire, but we must look to Oxfordshire to find one of the first listings of the name, that being Edith de Hicford who was listed there in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Hugefard family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hugefard arrived in North America very early: John Hickford, who sailed to Maine in 1640 and Thomas Hickford to Maryland in 1669.
