The name Hulsey reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Hulsey family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hulsey 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.

Hulsey Early Origins



The surname Hulsey 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.

Hulsey Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names tend to be marked by an enormous number of spelling variations. This is largely due to the fact that Old and Middle English lacked any spelling rules when Norman French was introduced in the 11th century. The languages of the English courts at that time were French and Latin. These various languages mixed quite freely in the evolving social milieu. The final element of this mix is that medieval scribes spelled words according to their sounds rather than any definite rules, so a name was often spelled in as many different ways as the number of documents it appeared in. The name was spelled Huls, Hulse, Hulles, Hulsey and others.

The Great Migration



Because of the political and religious discontent in England, families began to migrate abroad in enormous numbers. Faced with persecution and starvation at home, the open frontiers and generally less oppressive social environment of the New World seemed tantalizing indeed to many English people. The trip was difficult, and not all made it unscathed, but many of those who did get to Canada and the United States made important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers with Hulsey name or one of its variants:

Hulsey Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Charles Hulsey, who landed in San Francisco, California in 1850
  • E. B. Hulsey, aged 23, who settled in America from London, in 1892

Hulsey Settlers in United States in the 20th Century

  • Lee Hulsey, aged 24, who emigrated to the United States, in 1920
  • Allan Hulsey, aged 28, who emigrated to the United States, in 1922
