Shakespeare ("Romeo and Juliet," 1592) was first to use it (in print) in the sense of "reddish-brown color of eyes" (in reference to the color of ripe hazel-nuts), when Mercutio accuses Benvolio of being testy with: “Thou wilt quarrell with a man for cracking Nuts, hauing no reason, but because thou hast hasell eyes."
