Hayes Genealogy & History

Hayes is a locational English surname, illustriously granted nineteen coats of arms. Hayes genealogy is rendered complex by the many spellings and derivations. Village and name variations include Hease, Hesa, and Heyse and O'Hea, and the derivations are said to be from Old English "haes", meaning brushwood, "hege", meaning hedge, "haye", meaning enclosure, or from Gaelic "A'hAodha", meaning fire. The Hayes family history includes a feudal manor in Sussex in ancient times, with other Hayes families found in Cambridgeshire, Devonshire, Dorset, Kent, Middlesex and Oxfordshire. Several Hayes families immigrated to Virginia in the 1630s, with the most renowned Hayes in America being 19th president Rutherford Hayes.
