The Anglo-Saxon name Coulinns comes from the personal name Nicholas. A common diminutive of the name Nicholas was Colin. Saint Collen was a 7th-century monk who gave his name to Llangollen, Denbighshire which translates from the Welsh as "church of the hazel-wood."

Coulinns Early Origins



The surname Coulinns was first found in Shropshire where they held a family seat before the Norman Conquest and were Lords of the manor having large estates in that shire and in neighboring Herefordshire.

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Coulinns arrived in North America very early: Alary Collin who settled in Philadelphia, Pa. in 1774; George Collin settled in Maryland in 1775; Patrick Collin settled in New Castle County, Del. in 1856.
