Origin of the Hail Family

Through some research today, I found that the Hail name and family comes from Hales Place in Canterbury, Kent.

At some point, working backwards down the line, Hail becomes “Hale” and finally, “de Hale.” It is a noble name, leading directly to King John I Plantagenet on one side and on the other to Swedish kings.

The Hail family emigrated to Massachusetts in the early 1600s, making their way slowly across the country over the next few centuries, before finally settling in California.

I decided to do some more work on the Hail side today, and I found a lot. But I am confused. Let me show you.

Does anyone notice anything here?? There is a married couple with practically the same last name. I was told it was probably a coincidence. ok…. I thought they might have been cousins but their families don’t match up.

Also, the last name “Hail” is spelled¬†so many¬†different ways…. Haile, Heal, Heale, Hale, Heales, Hales… sometimes within the same family. Sometimes the name drops off entirely for a few generations and then resurfaces again when it feels like it.

PS that chart is from 1504- 1550 England.

The more research I did, I think the Hail name, however it was spelled, might have been a big name, or at least a common one, in 15th-17th century England. I found a lot of “Sirs,” “Captains,” “Esquires” and “Dames.” And! I do think Martha and Frank Hail were distant cousins because I went as far back as I could on both Hail/Haile lines and this is what I found for both of them:

It was exactly the same – identical – for both of them. They were distant cousins. This chart is from the year 1400 – 1463 in Kent, England.
