Origin of Surname

Hacquoil, which in 1331 was spelt Hascouf, and in Latin charters Hasculfus, was the French form of the given name Aescwulf.

It is found in early medieval documents in Jersey but is not a Normandy name.

According to the Dictionnaire Etymologyique des noms de famille de France, it derives from the word hache meaning to cut or strike, to which in some cases has been added various diminutives. If so it appears to have been an occupational name for a forester or perhaps an agricultural contractor, one whose job it was to clear or harvest the land.

The earliest record of Hacquoil in Jersey is in a 1299 document.
