The ancient roots of the Howlane family name are in the Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Howlane comes from when the family lived in one of four places named Hoyland in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The surname Howlane belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Howlane Early Origins



The surname Howlane was first found in Yorkshire at either High Hoyland, Upper or Lower Hoyland, and Hoyland Swaine. All three parishes and villages are listed in the Domesday Book of 1086: Holand for Hoyland High; Hoiland for Hoyland Nether; and Hollande for Hoyland Swaine. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

All of the villages literally mean "cultivated land on or near a hill-spur," from the Old English words "hoh" + "land." The latter "Swaine" variant is believed to be a manorial affix added in the 12th century from a man called Swein. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



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 Howlane arrived in North America very early: John Howland came over on the "Mayflower" in 1620 with his Elizabeth Carver; Henry Howland settled in New England in 1630; along with Arthur; Joseph Howland arrived in New York in 1820..
