HAUGH Family History

This is a dual nationality surname, English or Irish or Anglo-Irish. It is recorded in several spelling forms including Hough, Haugh, Haw, Hawes, and Haws, and when English is a topographical or locational surname. It has (at least) three possible origins. The first is locational from residence at a 'hause', which maybe a neck of land, but was generally a place for gathering animals. The town of Hawes in Yorkshire, has the same meaning, but the surname pre-dates the town. The second possibility is as a patronymic from the medieval given name "Haw". This is itself a diminutive or pet-form of 'Hawkin' or 'Havekin', themselves from the Olde English pre 7th Century 'Hafoc'...
