Name Meaning

English (Gloucestershire): topographic name for someone who lived by a hawthorn tree (Middle English hawthorn).

English (Staffordshire): variant of Hordern, a habitational name from Hordern (in Rainow, Cheshire), Horderns in Chapel en le Frith (Derbyshire), Hordron in Langsett (Yorkshire), Little Hordern in Bolton le Moors (Lancashire), and perhaps from Hardhorn in Poulton le Fylde (Lancashire). All the placenames derive from Old English hord-ærn ‘storehouse’. By the early 17th century the surname had arrived in Staffordshire, where it was sometimes re-interpeted as Hawthorne.
