You lot are all Hawthornthwaites, and originate from Lancaster, Lancashire in England. The surname is Anglo-Saxon for a clearing in a Hawthorn copse. There is a Hawthornthwaite Fell [O.E.for "hill"] near Lancaster.
Incidently my surname also originates from Lancashire and is Angl-Saxon meaning "Eagles Hill" I know more but you need to reasearch in Libraries etc. It's more fun that way!
