According to the book, *For A Thousand Years~Hadsell-Hodsoll Geneology (Willard Hadsell, author)*, the Hadsell line emigrated first to England (from Hadsel Island, Norway). The Hadsells in England can be traced quite a ways back, to four generations prior to the Norman Conquest in 1066. Most of the Hodsoll/Hadsell family (they are the same family; they simply chose different spellings after leaving Hadsel Island) settled in Kent, England.

At least two Hadsell brothers came to America from England shortly after the first pilgrims landed.

I hope this helps. Best of luck to you who are likely related to me, even if distantly.
