History

The name comes from a personal name "Hano" and the Germanic "Gardo" and means ‘Hano’s garden’.
In 1135 the name was spelt ‘Hangardum’.
Stone-age tools of flint, in the shape of blades, arrows and axes have been found in the area.
A dolmen once stood nearby but has now disappeared into the marshy land.
During World War I, on the 28th March 1918, the village was evacuated.
