surname origin
Hello, can anyone give me information about the surname, 'Horrelt' ? I've seen a variation of it, with one r. - Horelt , and found it to go back to the late 19th century. I landed on your message board searching the name 'Hasselt' out of curiousity - due to the suffix of 'elt' - the name meant 'Hazelwood' i'm assuming then, that 'elt' suffix is 'aluth' meaning 'wood' (as written in the 'Hasselt' meaning of name?) - would be very please to have any input at all. Thanks - the only roots are in Germany, and immigrants that came to Brooklyn in 19th century, and those to Canada in 1928. a very small family. Thanks
