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

Hugher Early Origins



The surname Hugher 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]

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 Hugher arrived in North America very early: Richard Hewer landed in Philadelphia in 1634; Peter Hewer arrived in 1776; and in 1783 August Hewer purchased lands in Nova Scotia.
