Hammill Family HistoryThis unusual name has two possible origins, the first of which is Scottish but is ultimately of Norman origin, and is a locational surname from the place called 'Haineville' or 'Henneville' in Manchester. The placename derives from the Germanic personal name 'Hagano', which means 'hawthorn' and was originally a nickname, found in medieval England as 'Hain' and 'Heyne', with the Olde French word 'ville', meaning settlement, village. The surname as Ham(m)ill and Hom(m)ill was most commonly found in the area known as 'Roughwood' in Ayrshire.
