HACKETT Family History

This unusual name has two possible origins, the first of which is from an Olde Norse byname, 'Hali', in Olde Danish 'Hake', given originally to someone with a hooked nose, and popular in medieval England as 'Hack' or 'Hake'. A number of surnames were generated from this source, Hackett and Haggett being diminutive forms of the name, recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as 'Hako' and in 1218 as 'Hacke', while Haket de Ridefort is recorded in Lincolnshire in 1160. The modern surname can be found as Haggett or Hackett, and in fact the two forms are found side by side in some medieval recordings, as in Rolland Haget or Haket (1158, Yorkshire)...
