Surnames What's in a Name Name Origins & Meanings (Broken Arrow Publishing)

Hawthorne is a variation of the English Place name Hawthorn, which described the man who lived by the bush of a hedge of hawthorn, from the Old English word haguporn, which was the name for the thorn used to make hedges and enclosures. The -e at the end was generally found in Northern Ireland. Cognates, or names from words in other languages that mean the same thing, are: Hagedorn, Haydorn, Heydorn, Heidorn (German); Van Hagengoren (Flemish), and Hagedoorn (Dutch). Requested by William J. Hawthorne

Hello Pat,

I assume that somehow or other we are related since Hathorne (no "w") is not a particularly common name. My grandfather, Freeman Elsworth Hathorne was born somewhere in Missouri in 1866. He moved to Arizona as a young man and married a Navaho woman and owned a trading post on the reservation at Keems Canyon. My father, Richard Elsworth Hathorne, was born there in 1914. They moved to California in 1921, and I was born here in 1945. That's about all I know of my branch of the family. I'd be curious to know what you might know, especially if it turns out that we are related. I hope that this may be of some help.

I have researched my family, Hathorne's, in central Mississippi, back to Nicholas C. Hathorne. He was born in South Carolina in 1805. He married Betsy Bryant and moved to Covington County Mississippi.

One of his sons was Robert C. Hathorne, was born in 1825 and married Keziah Knight, sister to the infamous Capt Newt Knight, deserter from the Confederate Army and supposed leader of the "Free State of Jones".

Robert and Keziah had many children, one of them was my great-grandfather, Daniel B. Hathorne who was born in 1850. My grandfather was James Hawthorne, 1889, and my father is also James Hawthorne, 1924, who still lives in Taylorsville, Smith County.

Any information that would pre-date Nicholas (1805) would be greatly appreciated.


I replied to this post on a message board and found no connection, yet to his family:
