Hi My maiden name was Halfacre. I was born in Sydney Australia. I have traced my ancestors back to 1700's in England. I read up on the name and supposedly, it originated in Cornwall and the people who were given a parcel of land were then know as the Halfacre's. I was also told that when the Norman's conquered England, they were rewarded with a half acre of land and then known as Halfacre. Could you please tell me what you were told please. Regards Joan Harris (nee Halfacre).
