Origins Available: Dutch, German, Scottish


The first bearers of the distinguished surname Hole came to England in the great wave of migration that followed the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is occupational in origin, stemming from the primary activity of the bearer. It is derived from the Old French term "halle," which referred to a large manor house, and indicates that the original bearer of the name worked at the manor of the local Lord in some role such as a servant or chamberlain. Many of the Norman noblemen who came to England with William the Conqueror soon grew dissatisfied with William's rule; as such, members of the Hole family accepted land grants from King Malcolm Canmore of Scotland, and became prominent in that country.

Hole Early Origins



The surname Hole was first found in Lincolnshire, England, where the family was granted lands after the Norman Conquest in 1066. The Hole family is directly descended from Earl Fitzwilliam, who held a family seat at Greatford Hall in Lincolnshire, after the Norman Conquest. The younger son of this noble house, Arthur FitzWilliam, came to be known as "Hall" so as to distinguish him from his senior brother. Hence, Arthur Hall was the first known bearer of the name, appearing on record about the year 1090.
