My mothers maiden name is Hawthornthwaite.The family originate from near Lancaster, Lancashire in England.In the 1881 census of the U.K. there were just 37 Hawthornthwaites. The surname is Anglo-Saxon/ Norse meaning"clearing among the Hawthorns".There is a Hawthornthwaite Fell [Hill, again Old English ] near Lancaster. The family were often Baptised in St. Marys Parish Church in Lancaster.The family stillreside largely in Lancashire. Get reasearching!Incidently my surname is also Anglo-Saxon/Ancient British and means Eagles Hill.Earnshaws also originate in Lancashire.
