Early Origins of the Fullone family
The surname Fullone was first found in Middlesex at Fulham, a parish, in the union of Kensington, Kensington division of the hundred
of Ossulstone. "Fulham is a spot of considerable antiquity: the Danes, on their invasion of England
, fixed their head-quarters here, in 879; and, after wintering in the place, set sail for Flanders
in the spring." CITATION[CLOSE]

This ancient Saxon parish was first listed as Fulanham (c. 705) and then later as Fuleham in the Domesday Book of 1086. CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8) Literally the place name means "land in a river-bend of a man called Fulla" from the Old English personal name + "hamm." CITATION[CLOSE]

Conjecturally, the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Fulham, held by Fulcred who held the lands from the Bishop of London and who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086.

Fullone Spelling Variations
Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations
. When the Normans
became the ruling people of England
in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Fullem, Fullam, Fulham and others.

Migration of the Fullone family to the New World and Oceana
For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England
. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Fullone or a variant listed above were: Anthony Fulgham, who settled in Virginia in 1664; Francis Fullam, who settled in New England
in 1684; John Fulham, who arrived in Carolina in 1703; Peter Fulham, who was on record in Philadelphia in 1743.
