Hearne's 1907 edition of "A brief History and Genealogy of the Hearne Family" the author states that "This family traces its settlement in England to the era if the Norman Conquest, and the name, as then written, Heroun, is found amongst the persons of distinction who followed in the train of William the Conqueror, A.D. 1066.
"A work published in London, England, in 1874, upon the "Norman People and Their Existing Descendants in the Brittish Dominions and the United States of America," contains the following information:
"Hearne, for Heron, from Hairun near Rouen, Normandy.
"Tihel de Heiron was in Essex in 1086, He accompanied William the Conqueror. William Heron held a barony in Normandy, time of Philip Augustus. Odonel Heron, time of William Rufus, 1087, witnessed a charter in Durhm, England. Alban de Hairun held a barony in Hertfordshire, England, A.D. 1165. Richard de Hairun held in Essex also in 1165. Dru de Hairun was in Yorkshir, and Jordan de Hairun in Northumberland. In the latter county the Herons were of great note, and William Heron was sommoned as a baron in 1369.

|Hearn(e) George Elgin was
born in 1840 He married a woman named Sarah Ann from the
Colbourne/Coburg area of Ontario. At some time after his
birth his name changed to Hearn dropping the 'e'.
Although it appears that relatives in the western
provinces have retained the 'e'. George and Sarah had 7
children. William Albert (m. Ellen Earl) born 1961-died
New Liskeard, Ont 1919: George William (not married)born
1863-died Coe Hill, 1939: Ellen Bertha (m. John Hollie)
born 1866-no date of death available: Henry Munroe (m.

Jane (not married) born 1870 died in Colborne: C. Eleanor
