The name Hughar is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a hewer, an occupational name for a cutter of wood or stone. The surname Hughar is derived from the Old English word heawan, which means to hew or cut.

The surname Hughar was first found in Cambridgeshire where Benedist le Huwere was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. Walter le Howere was listed in Kent in the same rolls. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hughar Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hughar include Hewer, Hewar and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hughar were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Richard Hewer landed in Philadelphia in 1634; Peter Hewer arrived in 1776; and in 1783 August Hewer purchased lands in Nova Scotia.
