Hollingshead History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancient roots of the Hollingshead family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Hollingshead comes from when the family lived in the region of Hollingside or Holmside in Durham.

Early Origins of the Hollingshead family


The surname Hollingshead was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Raphael Holinshed (1529-1580) was an English chronicler, best known for his Holinshed's Chronicles first published in 1577, and later in a second edition in 1587. It is generally thought that Shakespeare used the revised second edition of the Chronicles (1587) as the source for most of his history plays.

Migration of the Hollingshead family to the New World and Oceana


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 Hollingshead arrived in North America very early:
