Hullse is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the personal name Hull. However, the surname Hullse is often derived from residence in the settlement of Hull in the county of Cheshire. In this case, the name belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Hullse Early Origins



The surname Hullse was first found in Yorkshire at Kingston upon Hull, more commonly known as Hull, a city in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The place is derived from the River Hull and dates back to at least 1228 [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

and is home to the largest parish church in England dating back to 1285. In 1642, it was the scene of the first skirmish of the English Civil War when on orders of Parliament, the Governor of Hull, Sir John Hotham (d. 1645) shut the gates of the town to King Charles I. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hullse or a variant listed above: Joseph Hull with his wife Agnes settled in New England in 1635 with seven children; Elizabeth and George Hull settled in Nantasket in 1630; Joseph Hull settled with his wife, seven children, and three servants, in Massachusetts in 1635..
