Looking for information on when the Hadsell's left Hadsell Island, in the Lofoten's, and whether they emigrated to England before entering the U.S. Would also like to know if Hadsells still occupy the Island.

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.

Hi,
I have just been looking up my surname "Hodsell" & stumbled across your post!
Could you give me any information you have? I was only aware of Hodsell's living in the UK and NZ

Any idea where I can buy a copy of the book? My son desperately wants one.
