HARE Family History

Recorded as Hare, Hair, and the much rarer Hares, this Anglo-Scottish and sometimes Irish surname has a number of possible origins. The most likely is as a derivation from the Olde English pre 7th Century word, "hara", meaning a hare, and hence a medieval nickname either for a fast runner, or given the robust humour of the Chaucerian period, the complete opposite!

    David L Hare

    My name is Dave Hare. I am decended from a line of Hares in North Carolina, pre Revoluntionary war. I have run into a roadblock there and can not find where exactly that they immigrated from. Family stories say Ireland, which is true, but DNA says I'm also Scottish and English. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
