A person's most treasured possession, their most valued asset, is their name. Everyone at heart is an ancestor worshipper. No one needs to be ashamed of a proper and wholesome family pride. All the races of mankind, from the most primitive tribes to the most sophisticated, have preserved by some means the descent of their great families, their chiefs and commoners. The sacred contain a great many genealogies, passed down by word of mouth, in poem, song and chant, for many generations before they were committed to writing. The family is the cornerstone of our civilization, vital to our racial, national and personal security.

For most of us it is not possible to trace with accuracy before the time when surnames were first adopted. The nomads of the dark ages felt no need of surnames, nor did their contemporaries in the established communities, the hamlets and manors where all lived under the patronage of their local Lord. At first there was but one house, the Lord's hall whose inhabitants bore personal names related to their occupation or their personal characteristics, or their aspirations in this world or the next. By the time the whole of Europe was won to Christianity most of the names familiar to us today as Christian names had been chosen.

In those days when communities were small and men were closely bound by personal allegiance to each other, each was identified by a single name only. As the population increased, communication, trade and travel became easier, confusion would arise unless there was some way of identifying particular persons of the same name. Thus surnames began to be used. At first they were not necessarily fixed, and changed with each generation as if they had been a second Christian name. They were chosen casually, and discarded without a thought.

Usually one of four sources would provide a surname. It might be the name of a parent William the son of John might be William Johnson, but his son might be William Williamson. It might be a person's trade or occupation Fletcher, the arrow maker; Constable, the custodian of the peace; Shoemaker, the cobbler; Carpenter, one who builds houses. It might remind a person's neighbors of their birthplace York, the person from York or their residence Woods, by the woods; Ford, near the ford. Any of these names might become hereditary and become true family surnames. Thus a name begins its course through history.

Smith in his "History of Surnames" states that the surname Haggard/Hoggard and their many variations was first Hagar in Hebrew had a meaning of "stranger" which has an early history going back to the Bible where Hagar was a concubine of Abraham, mother of Ishmael. She was Sarah's handmaiden who, because she bore a son to Abraham while Sarah was barren, grew haughty. After the birth of Sarah's son Isaac, Hagar and Ishmael were turned out of Abraham's tents. They almost died in the wilderness; but were rescued when God pointed out a spring to Hagar. (See Gen. XVI).

In Welsh it was Hayard meaning "pleasing"; in Cornish British it was Hegar, and in Gaelic it was Argher meaning "joy"; in the Dutch language it is Hageraats, and in German "Horger" meaning "firm edge" as in a sword. In Denmark the name Ogard had a meaning of "hay yard". Webster's Dictionary lists "Hag" as "a witch; an ugly old woman; and "ard" as a suffix indicating "in excess"; "Haggard" meaning "lean and hollow-eyed".

Guppy in his "History of Surnames" notes Haggard and its variants are probably connected in their descent with the Hagards, who were the Lords of the manor of Bourn in the 17th and 18th centuries.

"Comstock, Haggard and Allied Families" compiled and edited by Mary Jane Comstock, printed by the Adams Press, Chicago, 1973. Copy in the Library of Congress, catalog card No. 73-76375. Mary Jane Comstock was stricken with Polio at the age of 21 which left her a quadriplegic. She died before she could find her connecting link to the known Haggard lines. Her courage should be an inspiration to all of us. Later research indicates she was a descendant of Zechariah Haggard.

"The Hoggards of Poplar Hall" researched, compiled, edited and published by Mrs. Alice Granberry Walter, 4004 Atlantic Avenue, Suite 506, Virginia Beach, VA 23451. She shows the probable connection between Peter Hogard and the James Haggard, identified by David Dawson Haggard as the founder of the family.

Our Sincere thanks to all the members of the family who have shared their research and family records.

While the Ogards and Haggards lived in the same area for over 250 years there is no known connection between the families other than a plate found in the possession of John Haggard (see 111) with the Ogard family crest, "Azure. a mullet of six points argent, through which the Haggards of Bradenham Hall claim descent from Sir Andrew Ogard, Knight of Bradenham Castle, County Norfolk, who settled in England and was naturalized by King Henry VI in 1433. He was a scion of a most distinguished family in Denmark, where the name is still to be found (1899).

1625 William Hagar, born in London, England 1625; was at Watertown, Massachusetts in 1645 where he died in 1684.

1635 Robert Haggar, born ca. 1602, departed from London, England in the ship "Alice" at the age of 33 and arrived in Virginia in 1635.

1635 "Virginia Colonial Abstracts" by Beverly Fleet, Vol. 1, Page 50--Accomack County Records 1632-1637: 1635 Servants researved out of England by the ship "James and Revenge" viz. Jno. Haggard.

Thomas Davis and John Williams and Steven Norman, et al, for transportation of 60 persons: Henry Groany, Peter Hogard, John Giles, Francis Smith, et als.

1678 James Haggard, (identified in the book by David Dawson Haggard) "The traditions of our fathers are that one James Haggard, born ca. 1678, Bradenham Hall, England, son of a wealthy aristocratic Lord of England, was educated for the ministry. He joined the English Army as a private against his father's wishes. Lord Haggard felt that the family's social status would warrant a commission) so Lord Haggard paid handsomly to have young James Haggard smuggled out of England aboard a merchant vessel bound for Norfolk, VA. The unscruplous captain knowing Lord Haggard would never admit to such a scheme threw young James Haggard in with other indentured servants and sold a contract for his services to a wealthy planter, thus collecting for James' passage twice. Young James Haggard landed in Norfolk, VA, ca. 1698 (prior to his 21st birthday).

The wealthy planter finding young James Haggard well educated put him to teaching school. There was connected with this school a young woman whose charms so impressed him that they eloped to North Carolina and were married since it was illegal for a bonded servant to marry in Virginia. They had a large family including: Nathaniel, Edmund, Zechariah, and Gray or Granville.

NOTE: David Dawson Haggard was in contact with the English author H. Rider Haggard, who was in his prime about 1890, and was writing almost two books a year. H. Rider Haggard had a style of collecting known facts and weaving a story around them so his readers never knew fact from fiction. Bradenham Hall, home of H. Rider Haggard, wasn't built until about 1725, over 50 years after young James Haggard was born, and wasn't purchased by the Haggards until about 1850. As of 1993 there is no known connection between the English and American Haggards.

I do order that all my personal estate shall be sold and as much of my real estate as shall pay all my debts and legacies and the remainder to be equally divided between my two grandsons Anthony Hoggatt, son of Nathaniel Hoggatt, and Anthony Collins, son of Stephen Collins.

(s) Anthony Hoggatt

Note: If Anthony Hoggard was born ca. 1646 and died in 1755 then he would have been 109 when he died which seems unlikely. It appears more probable that these records are of two or more related people named Anthony Hoggard.

Records in the same area include two others believed to be brothers of those named.
