The Anglo-Saxon name Hull comes from the personal name Hull. However, the surname Hull is often derived from residence in the settlement of Hull in the county of Cheshire. In this case, the name belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Hull Early Origins



The surname Hull was first found in Yorkshire at Kingston upon Hull, more commonly known as Hull, a city in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The place is derived from the River Hull and dates back to at least 1228 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and is home to the largest parish church in England dating back to 1285. In 1642, it was the scene of the first skirmish of the English Civil War when on orders of Parliament, the Governor of Hull, Sir John Hotham (d. 1645) shut the gates of the town to King Charles I. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Hull family emigrate to North America:
