Name meaning websites point to a possible origin of the surname Hardin is from a place by the name of Harden in West Yorkshire, England. The name is a compound word derived from the Old English words "hara" meaning hare and "denu" meaning valley. This places this surname in the category of habitational. Therefore, the name means someone who lived in or near a valley of the hare. One of the first records in which it appears is when John de Hardene who paid homage to King Edward I in 1296. Hardin is the spelling used by this branch of the Hardin family. Other variant spellings include Harden, Hardene, Hardon etc. One of the first records using this surname was
Another possible origin and meaning of the surname Hardin
The name Hardin is not of Gallic origin; the i has been substituted for e in the second syllable, and it has been traced Har-den as its root, imd anciently the name was Harlouin. Persons bearing that name have long been distinguished in the annals of France. Their coat of arms is that of a Baron. There are five direct generations of distinguished soldiers in United States. The name Hardi or Hardin, the bold, the adventuresome, the courageous is certainly exemplified in our land.
"The Will of Mark Hardin mentions the name of his wife as Mary. Judge Rigsby, in his manuscript on the Hardin Family, says that she was Mary Hogue, an English woman, and that they were married either in England or America. So far as the writer knows, the authority for the name rests solely with Judge Rigsby, as no record has been found to support this claim."
The Hardin Family, Fauquier County and Georges Creek Branch
Mark Hardin and Mary (Hogue) Founders
"Authentic records of this branch of the Hardin family begin with Mark Hardin when he bought land in 1716 from the proprietors in that part of Prince William (then Stafford) county, Virginia, which was later cut off to form Fauquier. Though he died many years before the organization of Fauquier County, he is mentioned as one of the pioneer land owners of that county. He obtained two grants in 1716, for 122 and 94 acres; another for 642 acres on Elk run in 1723 still another for 232 acres on Mars Run in 1724. He sold 354 acres of land, on Mars run in 1733 apparently taking in exchange 300 acres of land from James McDonnell on the South branch of Kettle run. He was still in possession of the Elk and Kettle run tracts, comprising 942 acres at the time of his death which he disposed of by will.
These various land transactions and his will dated March 16, 1734 and proved May 21, 1735 in Prince William County, still to be found (a certified copy) in the loose files of that county, constitute all of the known authentic, records of this pioneer progenitor of the Fauquier branch of the Hardin Family. Virginia authorities, such as Stannard, say that the Hardin family lived in St. Paul’s Parish for several generations before Mark Hardin took up land in Fauquier, where they begat Marks and Martins, in support of this is the multiplicity of Marks in all branches of the family besides other common names, Martin, John, George, William and Henry, and the further fact that the apparently related Hardins that settled on Georges Creek and later in Kentucky can only be partially accounted for as descendants of the pioneer couple for the most part claiming the relationships just mention Hardin was a Huguenot refugee. This tradition is so deep seated that it has been apparently accepted without question or further investigation by historians and historical societies. In some quarters it is some what veiled and vague, while others go so far as to fix dates and places. Commonly this mythical Huguenot refugee ancestor was a Martin Hardonuis sometimes appearing alone and sometimes with two other brothers, one supposedly killed by the Indians in Virginia and the other going to South Carolina. Those that have made only a superficial study of the records positively identify their mysterious ancestor as Mark Hardin the pioneer of Fauquier. It is said in one of the best written manuscripts, claiming authenticity, that Mark Hardin was born in Rouen, France in 1660 and after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes was compelled to flee to England where he remained for a time and where he married Mary Hogue. He then immigrated to Canada, but finding the winters too severe he came to Virginia, arriving in 1706. The other brothers seem to have arrived at the same time. How they came is not stated. William went on south to South Carolina. The family chart of the Chicago Sub-branch of the family places Mark Hardin of Fauquier as a son of John Hardin, merchant of London without comment, explanation or evidence of any kind. This could be true if John Hardin of London was a relative of the older Hardin families in Virginia. None of these versions, unless the first Stannards, which fails to establish the parents of Mark Hardin, can be whole heartedly accepted. There may be truth in all. More study has perhaps been given to the Huguenot emigrants than to any other class, and lack of mention of any one bearing the name of Hardin, coupled with the fact that the Hardins had scattered rather widely over Virginia at the time of the Huguenot migration makes the Huguenot story untenable. However remembering the culture, of those days to name children for their fathers and grandfathers the names of John, martin, Mark and Henry appearing in the will of Mark Hardin are not without significance, and we may well believe that there was an ancestor John and also a Martin, who may have been the traditional Martin, though most unlikely a Huguenot. My own private theory is that the Huguenot part of the story came from a maternal ancestor of whose marriage records have been lost. Passing from the traditional back to the recorded history, there are a few facts that help in a general way to fix the approximate age of Mark Hardin and the members of his family. Referring to the genealogical sheet which contains the names of the family of Mark and Mary Hardin, as listed in his will, with other dates and facts that are authentic; to the further fact that the wording of the will shows that only one son, his oldest, and one daughter, Martha, were married and had families, when the will was written; also, to Mark’s real estate activities as late as 1733, we may reasonably conclude that he was what would be termed today as a middle aged man when he died. His grandson, John Jr., son of Marks oldest son, John, was born, according to what seems to be reliable, accounts, in 1733, which means that the father was born about 1710 or earlier. Counting back twenty five years it is probable that Mark was born about 1685 so far as found, records mention Mary, wife of Mark, only in his will and in connection with its administration. it is claimed that her maiden name was Mary Hogue, and in the absence of any evidence to the contrary the writer has used the name Hogue in his notes, but it must be admitted that no real evidence has been offered in proof of the claim."

THE HARDINS IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF THE BOONE TRAIL
By Faustina Kelly.
After the massacre of St. Bartholomew in Northern France, 1706, three brothers by the name of Hardin fled from their native France to America. Two settled in Virginia, the third in South Carolina. John Hardin remained in Virginia and became a victim of savage Indians. Mark settled in the Carolinas and was the father of Gen. William Hardin who was in Gen. Marion's brigade against the English in the War of the Revolution. On April 12, 1781, he captured Fort Balfour, taking nearly one hundred prisoners.

Mark Hardin first appears in the Virginia records in Northumberland County, 7 April, 1707, when he was deeded 50 acres of land by the heirs of John Melton, deceased. On 22 Sept., 1715 he had a runaway slave returned to him by William Barnes of Maryland. While still living in Northumberland County, he had two grants of 94 acres and 122 1/2 acres in Richmond County. On 14 March, 1720 Mark Hardin and Mary his wife of Richmond County deeded away the land that he had bought in Northumberland County in 1707. A grant for 642 acres in Stafford County was granted him 4 March 1722/23 calls him Mark Hardin of King George County, and another 232 acres in Stafford County was granted him 24 July, 1724. All or most of this land was in what later became the Elk Run district.
The Hardin Family is a large and diverse family group. The United States Census Bureau, based on a test population of 6,290,261 valid records taken from the 1990 census, estimated that .019 percent of the 1990 population was named Hardin, .016 percent was named Harding and .011 percent had the surname of Harden. Historically the spelling of the name was often different for the same individual and court records reflect Hardin, Harden and Harding. When recording The name "Hardin" in public records a century ago many officials substitute the letter "E" for the letter "I" in the second syllable, resulting in "Harden." In England they spell the name this way, and its root is Hareden or Hare-den. Harding, or Hardynge, is a common English form. The name does not suggest a Gallic origin but the Huguenot refugees brought with their French blood French names. The consensus is that "Hardin" is a metamorphosis of a French name, probably Hardouin. Through what changes its orthography has passed since the Huguenots fled from France is to some extent a matter of speculation. Researching has revealed that there were at least two separate Hardin families living in seventeenth century Colonial America. One of these families was of English ancestry and little is known by this writer regarding this clan. My family's lineage can be traced back to seventeenth century France and the persecutions of the Huguenots and their ensuing escape to Amsterdam and the New World. The Honorable Martin D. Hardin, (1780 - 1823) great-grandson of Mark Hardin, told General William Preston "that anciently the name was Hardouin," as reported in the book "Life of Ben Hardin," by F.P. Little. There is strong evidence to support this early spelling, if as many believe Mark Hardin is the son of Martin Hardewyn (an obvious Dutch phoneticization of the French "Hardouin") and Madeleine du Sauchoy, daughter of the Huguenots Marc du Sauchoy and Elizabeth Rossignol of New Amsterdam New York. To date I have been unable to establish when Martin Hardewyn arrived in the New World. Records exists showing the birth of Madeleine as January 1656/57 in New Amsterdam, her father Marc du Sauchoy was born in France in 1626 and was in America as early as 1655. Mark and Madeleine were married on March 5, 1670/71 in New Amsterdam. Their first child Isaac was baptized on May 15 1673 in the Dutch Reformed Church in New Amsterdam. Their fifth child, our ancestor, Mark (Marcus) Hardin was baptized on March 26, 1681 in Staten Island, New York. It is this writers opinion that the above hypothesis of my ancestors migration to the New World is correct or at least there is a preponderance of evidence to support its accuracy over the other theories recited below. There are other speculations about Mark's heritage, the following are a few of these conjectures: Mr. Lewis Wiley Rigsby in his book "Georgia Families" in Chapter VIII entitled "Harden Hints and Genealogies" describes the following as fact, but cites no documentation for evidence. "Mark Hardin was born in Rouen, France, in 1660. When he was about twenty-five years old, Louis XIV issued the Edit of Restoration, October 20, 1685, which revoked the Edict of Nantes. Mark Hardin was a Huguenot and immediately fled from France, settling in either England or Wales. He married Mary Hogue. Also, spelled Hoge, but whether the marriage occurred before fleeing France or after is uncertain. Mark, after residing for a short while in England or Wales, moved to Canada with his family. Because of the rigid winters they move south and settled in Prince William County, Virginia (about 1706) where he resided until his death in 1734." This story is often related as a proven reality by a number of researchers, but to-date I have seen no documentation supporting their narrative. I have problems with the timeline presented by tis supposition. For example if Mark had been born in 1660 as stated above and died in 1734 (his will was probated in 1735, a proven fact) he would have been 74 years old at time of death. If the dates that are generally accepted as the birth dates of his children are correct, then he would have been 50 years old at the time of the birth of his first born, John Hardin in 1710, rather old for starting a new family in a wilderness. Also he would have been at the advanced age of 72 at the birth of his tenth child, Alis Hardin in 1732. Some researchers believe that Mark was not the first Hardin to come to the "New World," that the Hardin family had been in Virginia for several generations. Some circumstantial evidence supports this supposition for example in October 1608 the ships "Mary and Margaret" arrived at Jamestown. On board the ship under the category of "Laborers" was one individual listed as "Hardwyn" (no first name shown). Also on July 22, 1675, The Bristol Register recorded the Virginia voyage of one "William Hardin" as an indentured servant to Francis Rawles for four years. Camilla Davis Trammell in her superb book called "Seven Pines," recounts the history an immigration to Texas of Swan Hardin and family. Her introduction of his ancestors to the "New World" is as follows: "1685 - Ann Hogue Hardouin arrived in America with five sons. She was the wife of Marc Hardouin of Rouen, France, a French Huguenot who left after the St. Bartholomew Massacre. Marc had five sons, one drowned, two stayed in Virginia, one moved to Pennsylvania, and one went to the Carolinas." She cites as her source for this story as John Henry Brown's "Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas," page 415. Several elements of the above narrative are dubious, but one part is obviously in error. The "St. Bartholomew Massacre" occurred on August 24, 1572, which was more than One Hundred (100) years before the above reported flight of Marc Hardouin. It is possible of course that what was intended was the "Edit of Fontainebleu" also known as the "Edit of Restoration" that revoked the Protestant (Huguenot) minority's right to worship. This occurred in 1685 and generated a mass exodus of Huguenots from France. In reviewing Ms. Trammell's original source, Page 415 of John Henry Brown's "Indian Wars and Pioneers of Texas" I find the following description: "The Hardin families are the descendants of a widow lady who immigrated from France, landing in Philadelphia with four sons, John, Henry, Mark and Martin Hardin. Her husband, during the internal commotion in France, had to flee for his life. Whether they pursued and killed him, or he died by other casualty, are unknown. His wife heard no more of him after he bid her adieu and rode away. From the best information that we can obtain, she was a Huguenot who came to America to escape persecution by Louis XIV, in the year 1685. William Hardin, the Grandfather of Frank Hardin, subject of this memoir, was a grandson of this widowed lady." We cannot authenticate the accuracy of Mr. Brown's recount of Frank Hardin lineage at this time. Nevertheless, one statement is in error. William Hardin would have been the "widowed lady's" great grandson. Assuming he is referring to Colonel William Hardin of Franklin County, Georgia, father of Swan Hardin and grandfather of Frank Hardin. Brown does not allude to the "St. Bartholoew Massacre" in his writing, leading us to think that Ms. Trammell supposedly used literary license at this point in her chronicle. Another area of interest is that Ms. Trammell provides a name to the "widow Lady, "Ann Hogue Hardouin", whereas John Henry Brown does not, Perhaps Ms. Trammell has another source of data not disclosed or her investigations uncovered these facts. One does wonder at the unique middle name shown for "Ann Hogue Hardouin." As the name "Hogue" is the alleged birth name of Mary Hardin, the spouse of Mark Hardin, of Virginia, and our proven ancestor. Leaving the realm of conjecture and speculation we are able to establish with a high degree of accuracy Mark Hardin's residences for the last 28 years of his life. Beginning on April 7, 1707 when Mark purchased a fifty (50) acre tract of land in Northumberland County, Virginia from the heirs of John Multon, giving in consideration 5000 pounds of tobacco. (As gold and silver became scarce in the colonies, and the use of wampum was terminated because of its complications, the Chesapeake colonies were able to rely on tobacco as a means of currency. Tobacco was the safest and most stable currency that the Chesapeake colonies had or could have, and it always had a value in exchange for gold.) The recording of this land transaction describe Mark Hardin's residence as Wicomico Parish, Northumberland County, Virginia. This deed was re-recorded by Mark Hardin on June 20, 1711, and his residency at this time was also shown as the same. His occupation was revealed as "carpenter" on the recorded document. Thirteen years after date of purchase on November 14, 1720, Mark Hardin and his wife Mary sold this land to John Pope, taking in cnsideration one male "Negro" slave. Mark's wife, Mary released her dower rights to the land, which suggest that Mark and Mary may have been married on the date of the original purchase. This certainly proves they were married at time of sale, November 14, 1720 when their residence was given as Richmond County, Virginia., probably on one of two land grants obtained by Mark; to wit: 122 1/2 acres on June 4, 1716 and 94 acres on December 23, 1716. Note! Mark's residency at the time of these grants was shown as Northumberland County, probably on the 50 acres purchased in 1707. On March 4, 1722 Mark Hardin received a land grant containing 642 acres located on "Elk Run" in Stafford County, Virginia. The documentation for this transaction reveals Mark's residency as King George County, Virginia. Further investigation revealed that the area where Mark's earlier land grants of 1716, namely the 122 1/2 and 94 acre tracts previously in Richmond County had been included in a new county named King George County in 1720.On page 56 Grant Book A and dated 13 July 1724 is a recorded land grant to Mark Harding of King George County, Virginia for a tract of land containing 232 acres on Dutchman's Run in King George County, Virginia. The tract was adjoining the lands of Alexander Beach, Joshua Butler, Benjamin Berryman and Mark's 642 acre tract Dated October 2, 1733 is the Deed from Mark Hardin of Hamilton Parish and Prince William County, Virginia to James McDonnell of Hamilton Parish and Prince William County, Virginia. Transferring for 50 lbs current money a certain tract of land containing 354 ½ acres. Said tract was located upon one of the branches of the Marsh commonly known by the name of Jeffry Johnson Marsh, is also known by the name of Dutchmans Run. Mark's ownership appeared by separate deeds granted to him to wit: First from the Proprietors Office for 122 ½ acres adjoining the lands of Jeffery Johnson and to Charles Emmons's corner. Second the tract being granted by Robert Carter Esq. for 232 acres adjoining on the lands of Alexander Beeches and Joshua Butler. On October 14, 1733 there is the Deed executed by James McDonnell of Hamilton Parish and Prince William County, Virginia to Mark Hardin of Hamilton Parish and Prince William County, Virginia. Transferring for 50 pounds current money a tract of land containing 300 acres on the East Side of the south branch of Kettle Run. Said tract adjoined the lands of Capt. Thomas Barber and Wm. McBee. Martha, wife of the above James McDonnell, relinquish her right of Dower of in and to said lands and premises. There is evidence that this James McDonnell was Mark's son-in-law. See Mark's last will and testament regarding his bequest to his daughter Martha McDonnell. Mark was residing in Prince William County, Virginia when he executed his Last Will and Testament on March 16, 1734 and was still there when the will was probated on May 21, 1735. Although records don't indicate the exact day of his death, one can assume it occurred shortly before the date of the will's probate in May, 1735. At the time of his death Mark owned a total of 942 acres all located in Prince William County, Virginia. The land was given to his children as follows: John Hardin - 232 acres in Prince William Co., Virginia, part of the 642 acre tract acquired by Mark Hardin by land grant on March 4, 1722. Martin Hardin - 210 acres in Prince William Co., Virginia, part of the 642 acre tract acquired by Mark Hardin by land grant on March 4, 1722 Mark Hardin And Mark Hardin's wife Mary's dower portion - 200 acres in Prince William Co., Virginia, part of the 642 acre tract acquired by Mark Hardin by land grant on March 4, 1722 Henry Hardin - 200 acres in Prince William Co., Virginia part of the 300 acre tract purchased from James McDonnell on October 14, 1733 Elizabeth Hardin - 100 acres in Prince William Co., Virginia part of the 300 acre tract purchased from James McDonnell on October 14, 1733
Martin Hardwyn and wife Madeleine du Sauchoy had a baby son, Mark, baptized 26 Mar 1681 in Staten Island New York. Said to be named for his grandfather Marcus du Sauchoy, who was a sponsor. However, there is nothing definite to link this baby to the Mark Hardin who was in Northumberland Co VA in 1707.
From "Breckinridge County" article in Kentucky Genealogy & Bilogy, Volume 1, editor: T.W.Westerfield: Came to America after massacre of St. Bartholomew; forced to flee from France because of Huguenot principles. [Possibly more tradition than fact.]
According to information on the Spainhour home page his parentage usually given as Martin Hardewyn and Madeleine du Sauchoy is not proven but based on likelihood and circumstance. His baptismal date is for their son but no definite proof is found that this baby was the Mark Hardin later found in Virginia. Other contemporary researchers concur that there is not proof.
It is much more likely that Mark Hardin is part of several Harding families found living in Northumberland Co VA and was never Hugenot, nor part of the Hardewyns in New York.
