Hulse is a name that first reached England following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hulse family 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.

The surname Hulse 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.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Hulse are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Hulse include Huls, Hulse, Hulles, Hulsey and others.

Faced with the chaos present in England at that time, many English families looked towards the open frontiers of the New World with its opportunities to escape oppression and starvation. People migrated to North America, as well as Australia and Ireland in droves, paying exorbitant rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, but those who did see the shores of North America were welcomed with great opportunity. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America carried the name Hulse, or a variant listed above:
