The Huorthe name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in or near the settlement of Haworth in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Hayward's Heath in Sussex is another possible origin of the name. The surname Huorthe belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Huorthe Early Origins



The surname Huorthe was first found in Yorkshire and Lancashire. Today Haworth is a rural village within the City of Bradford, in West Yorkshire, best known by the vicarage and former residence of the Brontė sisters. Their father was the vicar. Haworth dates back to 1209 when it was first listed as Hauewrth and literally meant "enclosure with a hedge," from the Old English words "haga" + "worth." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Lancashire branch originated at Haworth in the Parish of Rochdale, Salford hundred. One of the first records of the name was Robert de Haworth, Abbot of Stanlaw Abbey, resigned after having served 24 years as Abbot in 1292. Robert de Hawrth was listed in the Yorkshire Pipe Rolls. Alicia de Haworth was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. Johannes Haueworth and Johannes de Haworth were also listed on the same roll. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Huorthe were among those contributors: George Haworth ( c. 1676-1724), who arrived from Gambleside, Lancashire in 1699; John Haworth, aged 28, settled in New York in 1820; James, John, and Richard Haworth arrived in Philadelphia between 1820 and 1860..

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Quod ero spero
Motto Translation: I hope that I shall be.
