It is believed[according to whom?] people from the area emigrated to Sundsvall in Sweden centuries ago and kept Hage as their surname. Descendants of that group eventually emigrated to Australia around 1900, to South Stradbroke Island near the Gold Coast in the state of Queensland. To this day the descendants from that group maintain a strong presence in southeast Queensland.
