The Herlong family lived in Normandy, France. The Normans frequently used the name of their estate in Normandy as part of their name.The family name Herlong was brought to England after the Norman Conquest, when William the Conqueror gave his friends and relatives most of the land formerly owned by Anglo-Saxon aristocrats.

Herlong Early Origins

Herlong Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Herlong family name include Herlwin, Herluin, Hurlin, Herlewin, Herling, Hurling, Hirwin, Erlewyn, Erlwin, Harlewyn and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Herlong family to immigrate North America: Ann and Andreas Erlewyn, who sailed to Philadelphia in 1731; Mary Hirwin to Philadelphia in 1820; and Michael Hurling, to Philadelphia, Pa. in 1848.
