Hastings

Origen: Escocés. The Hastings family claim the land of colorful tartans and skirling bagpipes as their ancient homeland. In Scotland, hereditary surnames were adopted according to fairly general rules and during the late Middle Ages, names that were derived from localities became increasingly widespread. Local names originally denoted the proprietorship of the village or estate. The Norman knight Robert of Hastings distinguished himself at the Battle of Hastings and was granted the town of Hastings by William the Conqueror as reward. First found in Sussex, where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Hastings in Ireland was assumed by the native Gaelic O'hOistin Sept of Counties Mayo and Limerick, who also used the name Histon as the anglicized form of their name. The name was also brought to Ulster by settlers, especially during the seventeenth century, who also used the name Hastie.
