Hultine History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The ancestors of the bearers of the Hultine family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in either of the settlements called Hulton in the counties of Lancashire and Staffordshire. The surname Hultine belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Early Origins of the Hultine family

The surname Hultine was first found in Lancashire at Little Hulton where "the Hultons were the early lords." [1] In Over Hulton, more evidence of the early family records were found. "It comprises 1300 acres, chiefly arable land, and entirely the property of William Hulton, Esq., of Hulton Park. The old Hall, the residence of this gentleman's ancestors through many generations, stood upon the site of the present mansion, which is of modern erection; the park is laid out in plantations and pleasure-grounds upon an extensive scale." [1]

The hamlet of Lostock in Lancashire was once a family seat. "This place formed part of the barony of Manchester, and was held by Richard de Hulton." [1]

One of the first records of the family was Jordan de Hulton, rector of the church of St. Elphin, Warrington, Lancashire c. 1250. [2]

Hultine Spelling Variations

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hultine include Hulton, Hultone and others.

Migration of the Hultine family

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hultine or a variant listed above: James Hulton settled in New Hampshire in 1718; Penny Hulton settled in Boston in 1767; Mathew Hulton arrived in Pennsylvania in 1772.
