Meaning & History

habitational name from Hartshorne (Derbyshire) from Old English heorot "hart stag" (genitive heorotes) and horn "horn" perhaps in reference to the nearby hill (known as Hart Hill) and its supposed resemblance to a hart's horn. Alternatively the name may be topographic from Middle English harteshorn "swine cress" for someone who lived at or near an area where swine cress grew.
