The ancestors of the name Huggul date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Huggul family lived 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."

Huggul Early Origins



The surname Huggul 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.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Huggul 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..
