Early Origins of the Huller family

The surname Huller was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. Conjecturally, this Norman family were granted lands in this county, and soon after branched in Cheshire. The name was from the Norman personal name Hulot. The most notable of the name at this time was Sir Richard Hulleys or Hullers who apparently accompanied King Edward 1st north in his conquest in his conquest of Scotland in 1291 and 1296.

Huller Spelling Variations

Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Hullies, Houlis, Houles, Hulsey, Huls, Hullers, Hulleys, Hullis, Hullys, Hulson, Houlson and many more.

United States Huller migration to the United States +

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Huller or a variant listed above were:
