Genealogical and Personal Memoirs Relating to Families of Boston and Eastern Mass. Cutler.

Oswolf, (Osulphus), was born in England before the time of Richard I. He was the father of Robert de Haverington, in whom the name Harrington originated.

Following the Norman Conquest of England, William, the Norman King, confiscated all of nearly all English lands and Manors and divided them among his victorious Vikings. In the great "Domesday Book" compiled by the Conqueror, William, every parcel of land was faithfully recorded. In his Political History of England, Adams states that French session of English Manors, became illustrious Barons. As revolts occurred from time to time, the confiscation of additional lands continued for many and English, and to this day hotels and restaurants in England print their bills of fare or menus in French. About 1086 A.D. William required that all land owners -- Saxons, Normans, and Danes, some 60,000 should congregate, and on bended knee solemnly swear allegiance to him and to his government. This oath constituted the birth of the great British Empire. Under such environment, and at the sound of the horses hoofs of charging knights, and the metallic clank of coats of mail, many surnames were created.

Oswolf, Or Osulphus, a Norman and a descendant of one of the Vikings of William's victorious army, had a son born on his portion of the English Lordship or Manor of Haverington, and the son was named Robert de Haverington. Through the process of evalution, the French preposition was in time omitted, and in about 1200 A.D., the letter "v" was dropped from the name. According to Cutter, in his Genalogical and Personal Memoirs Relating to Families of Boston and Eastern Mass., this was the origin of the name HARRINGTON.

The ancient family derived its name from their estate in Cumberland. The 1st of the name was Robert de Haverington, son of Osulphus or Oswolf, who held the Manor of Flemingby in the time of Richard I.


Robert, in the Reign of Edward I, removed to Aldringham Co., Lancashire which was granted on his marriage with Agness, sister and heir of Robert de Cancefield, its possessor, son of Robert de Cancefield, by Alice, his wife, sister and heir of Sir Robert le Fleming, of Aldringham. Of this marriage there was issue, Robert de Haverington (younger son), and probable ancestor of Robert Harrington, the emigrant Ancestor, who settled in Watertown, Mass., in 1642.
