Harden Family History

Recorded in several 'modern' spellings including Arderne, Ardron, Arden, Hardan, Harden, Hardern, Hareden and probably others, this is an English surname of medieval origins. It is locational and is either from one of the places called Harden, such as Harden in the county of Staffordshire, or Harden near Bingley, or from Arderne, now Arderne Hall, in Cheshire. The place names probably all mean 'The high valley' from the pre 7th century Olde English 'heah - denu' and certainly the Yorkshire places are definately about as high as one can get in the localities.
