When the ancestors of the Hulles family emigrated to England following the Norman Conquest in 1066 they brought their family name with them. They lived in Hulse, Cheshire. The name is indigenous to this area and is thought to derive from the Old English word holh, which means hollow or depression.

Early Origins of the Hulles family


The surname Hulles was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Norbury near Stockport. Conjecturally, they are descended from Bigot de Loges, the holder of these estates at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086, a census initiated by Duke William of Normandy after his conquest of England at Hastings in 1066. This noble may be assumed to be William Bigot, brother of the famous Roger Bigod, both of whom were at the Conquest in 1066. William had a son, Ilger, who embarked on the first Crusade in 1096 and was commander of 200 knights in Palestine. The family name also acquired estates at Mobberley in Cheshire.

Hulles Spelling Variations


The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Hulles has been recorded under many different variations, including Huls, Hulse, Hulles, Hulsey and others.

Migration of the Hulles family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hulless were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America: Charles Hulse who settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1843; G.W. Hulse settled in San Francisco Cal. in 1850; R. Hulse settled in Maryland in 1767..
