HARDESTY Family History

This name, with variant spelling Hardesty, is of Northern English locational origin from Hardistys in Nesfield Yorkshire. There is also a spot called Hardisty Hill in the parish of Fewton, Yorkshire. Recorded as Hardolfsty in 14th Century documents relating to that county, the first element is the Old English personal name Hardolf, a compound of 'hard', meaning 'hardy', 'brave', or 'strong', plus 'wulf', a wolf, ultimately from the Old Norse 'ulf', wolf, plus the Old English 'stig', sty. A sty was a pen, enclosure or cabin generally for a cattle, poultry, or swine, hence, 'hardolf's sty'.
