HATHAWAY Family History

This famous surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has two sources; firstly, it may be a topographical name for someone who lived by a path across a heath, from the Middle English "hath", a development of the Olde English pre 7th Century "haeth" meaning heath, plus the Middle English "way", from the Olde English "weg" way. Secondly, it may derive from the rare Olde English personal name "Heaethuwig", composed of the elements "heaethu" meaning strife, contention, plus "wig" war, which has Continental cognates such as the Germanic "Hedwig" from the Old High German "Haduwig". The surname dates back to the late 12th Century, (see below)...
