Huddelstomb History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The surname Huddelstomb was derived from a pre-existing place named Huddleston in the West Riding of Yorkshire. The place name is in turn derived from the Old English personal name Hudel and are said to be originally of Saxon descent.

Early Origins of the Huddelstomb family

The surname Huddelstomb was first found in Cumberland, where they originally held Millom Castle at Millom, now in Cumbria. Godard be Boyvill was granted a manor on the site and held the Manor of Millom c. 1134. His granddaughter married into the Hudleston family and ownership was passed in c. 1240. John Hudleston was given a licence to crenellate in 1335. Over the centuries the castle has fallen into ruin and is now used as a farmhouse. The parish of Sawston in Cambridgeshire was home to a branch of this illustrious family in early times. "The ancient manor-house here of the Huddleston family was visited by Queen Mary, who spent some time in it." [1]

Migration of the Huddelstomb family

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Huddelstomb family emigrate to North America: John Huddleston, who settled in Maine in 1622; Valentine Huddlestone, who settled in Maryland in 1663; Thomas Huddleston, who came to Maryland in 1775.
