Origins Available: English, German


Hulst is a name of ancient Norman origin. It arrived in England with the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hulst 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.

Hulst Early Origins



The surname Hulst 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.

Hulst Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Huls, Hulse, Hulles, Hulsey and others.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Hulst or a variant listed above:
