The Anglo-Saxon name Hollinwork comes from when the family resided as inhabitants by holly bushes. The surname Hollinwork originally derived from the Old English word hollins.

Hollinwork Early Origins



The surname Hollinwork was first found in Chester at Hollingworth, a township, in the parish of Mottram-in-Longden-Dale, union of Ashton-underLyne, hundred of Macclesfield. Today, the village is in the Metropolitan Borough of Tameside, Greater Manchester. The village dates back to before 1059 when it was listed as Holisurde. This was the spelling used in the Domesday Book of 1086. By the 13th century, it was listed as Holinewurth and literally meant "holly enclosure." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

From a period prior to the Conquest, the village wholly belonged to the family of Hollingworth, until, some centuries since, it was divided into two manors, one of which, with the old Hall or manor-house, continued in the hands of their descendants until the 1800s. Captain Robert de Hollingworth, after his return from India, re-purchased the ancient family estate from the Rev. Daniel Whitle, to whom his grandfather had sold it. He went about the arduous task to restoring the estate to its previous glory.

Hollinwork Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hollinwork has been recorded under many different variations, including Hollingsworth, Hollinsworth, Hollingworth and many more.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hollinwork or a variant listed above: Henry Hollingsworth settled in Pennsylvania in 1683; John Hollingsworth settled in Virginia in 1638; Richard Hollingsworth settled in Boston in 1635 with his wife and children, Valentine Hollingsworth settled in Pennsylvania in 1683 with his wife Anne and five children.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Disce ferenda pati
Motto Translation: Learn to endure what must be borne.
