    English (Lincolnshire and Yorkshire): habitational name from Hackforth (North Yorkshire) or Hackford (Norfolk). The former is named with Old English haca ‘hook’ + ford ‘ford’, meaning ‘ford at the bend’. The latter likely has the same etymology, or may contain the Old English personal name Haca.
