About the Hazen surname

There is a township in Northumberland, England, near Alnwick, and Warworth Castle, now called Hazon, containing 85 inhabitants today. In early records it was written Heisende, and philologists believe it was derived from Hegges ende (softened into Heies ende), meaning end of the hedge. To this day there are miles of hedge by the roadside in the township. From this town, the surname was derived.

All the Hazen's in America and Canada are descended from Edward Hazen who came from Cadney, Lincolnshire, England to Rowley, Massachusetts in 1638. Other settlers in Rowley were from Lincolnshire and in the political life of the town Edward Hazen was a man of influence and importance, one of four “overseers” of the settlement of Rowley. The town became known for its hemp and flax cloth, as well as cotton.
