Hulet History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The ancestors of the Hulet family migrated to England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The surname Hulet is based on the Norman personal name Hugh. Howlett was a baptismal name which means the son of Hugh. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are very few Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.


Early Origins of the Hulet family


The surname Hulet was first found in Yorkshire where Johannes Houlet et uxor ejus and Adam Howlot et Agnes uxor were listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379. Roger filius Hulot was also listed in Yorkshire in another early census. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
