The ancient Anglo-Saxon surname Hewelent came from the baptismal name Hugh. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Hewelent Early Origins



The surname Hewelent was first found in at the court of Edward the Confessor (1042-1066,) where Hugolin was Chamberlain to the King.

Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hewelent or a variant listed above: Benjamin Hewling, who sailed to New Jersey in 1677; Abraham and William Hewlings, also to New Jersey in 1678; and Philip Heulan, who settled in Newfoundland in 1869..
