The ancient roots of the Hallowill family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Hallowill comes from when the family lived near a holy spring having derived from the Old English terms halli, which meant holy, and welle, which meant spring. There are several place-names that are also derived from these words, including Halliwell in Lancashire, Holwell in Dorset and Oxfordshire, and Holywell and Northumberland.

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 Hallowill arrived in North America very early: Richard Halliwell settled in New York State in 1774.
