The name Hulsy arrived in England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Hulsy 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.

Early Origins of the Hulsy family


The surname Hulsy 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.

Migration of the Hulsy family to the New World and Oceana


Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad.
