An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Huggil come from when the family resided in Howgill or Hugill. Howgill is in Sedburgh, in the West Riding of Yorkshire. Hugill is in Westmorland (now part of Cumbria). The names have a common origin, however. They are based on the Old Norse word haugrgeil, which means "barrow (hill) in a ravine."

Huggil Early Origins



The surname Huggil was first found in Yorkshire 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.

Huggil 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. Huggil has been recorded under many different variations, including Hewgill, Hugill, Hugil and others.

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 Huggil or a variant listed above: John and Eleanor Hugil who settled in New York State in 1820 with eight children; Abraham Hugle settled in Philadelphia in 1754; with Charity; Arnold and Killian Hugle settled in Philadelphia in 1875..
