Hurt History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient Anglo-Saxon culture once found in Britain is the soil from which the many generations of the Hurt family have grown. This surname comes was also derived form the Old English word "heorot," which meant "stag." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)
The original bearer of this name most likely was known by this nicknames due to some traits or attributes that seemed "stag-like." There are many folk tales, myths and legends which portrayed animals behaving as humans.


Early Origins of the Hurt family


The surname Hurt was first found in Oxfordshire, where the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 listed Amicia le Hurt; Thomas le Hurt; and Hugh le Hurt as all holding lands there at that time. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Bardsley, C.W, A Dictionary of English and Welsh Surnames: With Special American Instances. Wiltshire: Heraldry Today, 1901. Print. (ISBN 0-900455-44-6)

"In the reign of Edward I. Hurt was a common name in Oxfordshire, and it was also represented then in Lincolnshire and Devonshire." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Guppy, Henry Brougham, Homes of Family Names in Great Britain. 1890. Print.

However, another source notes Aelfric Hort was living in Hampshire c. 1060 and in this case, he would have been a Saxon as this was before the Norman Conquest in 1066. He continues: Roger Hert was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk in 1166, Reginald Hurt was a Templar from Bedfordshire in 1185, Simon le Hert was listed in the Feet of Fines for Kent in 1197, Godrich le Hurt was listed in Berkshire in 1220, and finally Richard Hort was listed in the Assize Rolls of Warwickshire in 1221.

Migration of the Hurt family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hurt were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
