Heaslip

Origen: Normando. Heaslip is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in a valley noted for having many hazel trees. This name belongs to the class of topographic surnames, which were given to people who resided near physical features such as hills, streams, churches, or types of trees. The surname Heaslip is derived from the Old English word hæsel and the Old Norse word hesli, which both mean hazel, and from the Old English word hop, which refers to a valley or a hollow between two hills. First found in Yorkshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Heaslip in Ireland is usually of immigrant origin having been brought into the country by settlers from England, especially during the seventeenth century. The name literally means 'dweller in the hazel valley' and has a number of variants including Haslip and Hyslop. This name in Ireland can today mostly be found in County Cavan and in Munster Province.
