Anglo-Saxon culture. The name Hultombe comes from when the family lived in either of the settlements called Hulton in the counties of Lancashire and Staffordshire. The surname Hultombe 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 Hultombe family
Lancashire at Little Hulton where "the Hultons were the early lords." CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print. 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."

Migration of the Hultombe family to the New World and Oceana
At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hultombe arrived in North America very early: James Hulton settled in New Hampshire in 1718; Penny Hulton settled in Boston in 1767; Mathew Hulton arrived in Pennsylvania in 1772.
The Hultombe Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Mens flecti nescia
Motto Translation: A mind that cannot be bent.
