Hollien is a name whose history is connected to the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Hollien family once lived in an enclosed region. The surname Hollien originally derived from the Old English word hough which referred to a small protected space.

Hollien Early Origins



The surname Hollien was first found in Lancashire at Thingwall, a detached hamlet, in the township of Little Woolton, parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby. "Thyngwall was given in exchange by King John to an individual whose name is not now on record. In the following reign Richard, son of Thurston de Holland, held a carucate of land here 'of our lord the king,' for one mark, in exchange for his inheritance in Snodden (Smithden), 'which the king placed in his own forest.'"

Another branch was found at Dalbury in Derbyshire in early times. " In the reign of Edward II. Dalbury and Lees were the property of Sir Robert Holland." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hollien Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Hollien family name include Holland, Holand and others.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Hollien surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
