Hardaway Coat of Arms / Hardaway Family Crest

The surname of HARDAWAY was derived from the Old English HAEDWEG - dweller by the heath way. The name is also spelt HARDWAY, HATHAWAY and HATHWAY. Habitation names are derived from names denoting towns, villages, farmsteads or other named places, which include rivers, houses with signs on them, regions, or whole counties. The original bearer of the name who stayed in his area might be known by the name of his farm, or the locality in the parish; someone who moved to another town might be known by the name of his village; while someone who moved to another county could acquire the name of that county or the region from which he originated. Early records of the name mention Hadeuui of the County of Worcestershire, who was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086. Willelmus de Haythewy of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. Richard Hathewaye and Annie Maddox were married in London, in the year 1582. Francis Hathway was registered at Oxford University in 1621. George Hathaway and Annie Phipps were married at St. James's, Clerkenwell, London in 1743. This Old English female personal name which was composed of the elements 'heaou' (meaning strife and contention) and 'wig' meaning war was originally from the Old German name Hedwig. A Saint Hedwig lived in the 12th-13th centuries. She was the wife of Henry the Bearded, Duke of Silesia, and she founded numerous charitable institutions as well as increasing German influence in Silesia. In the Middle Ages heraldry came into use as a practical matter. It originated in the devices used to distinguish the armoured warriors in tournament and war, and was also placed on seals as marks of identity. As far as records show, true heraldry began in the middle of the 12th century, and appeared almost simultaneously in several countries of Western Europe. The Daily Telegraph of April 3rd l894 announced the death at Brentford of George HARDAWAY.
