The Hulland name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in an enclosed region. The surname Hulland originally derived from the Old English word hough which referred to a small protected space.
The surname Hulland was first found in Lancashire at Thingwall, a detached hamlet, in the township of Little Woolton, parish of Childwall, union and hundred of West Derby. "Thyngwall was given in exchange by King John to an individual whose name is not now on record. In the following reign Richard, son of Thurston de Holland, held a carucate of land here 'of our lord the king,' for one mark, in exchange for his inheritance in Snodden (Smithden), 'which the king placed in his own forest.'"  Another branch was found at Dalbury in Derbyshire in early times. " In the reign of Edward II. Dalbury and Lees were the property of Sir Robert Holland." 
Only recently has spelling become standardized in the English language. As the English language evolved in the Middle Ages, the spelling of names changed also. The name Hulland has undergone many spelling variations, including Holland, Holand and others.

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hulland were among those contributors:
