Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Huggills to arrive on North American shores: 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..
