According to the Hazen Family in America: "there is a township in
Northumberland, England, near Alnwick, and Warkworth Castle, now called Hazon (or
hazen). In early records it was written Heisende, and philologists believe it was
derived from Hegges ende (softened into Heies ende), meaning end of the hedge.
To this day there are miles of hedge by the roadside in the township. From this
town, the surname was derived. Hugh of Heisende made an agreement 8 Sept,
1202, regarding 100 acres of wood in Heisende.
