Families covered: Haggerston (Hagarston) of Haggerston (Hagreston)

(1) We first prepared this page in May 2004 using Raine's work. Unfortunately, we could not find our copy of that work when we reviewed the page in April 2019, comparing it with Betham. Where they disagree we keep to what was found in Raine's work largely because that was produced some 50 years later than Betham's. However, our inability to check that we had recorded Raine correctly, with successive generations apparently all named Thomas (unlike Betham), led us to report this caveat.
(2) Betham reports that "The name of Haggerston is of great antiquity in Scotland, and local from Halkerston'.
