The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Hulton come from when the family resided in either of the settlements called Hulton in the counties of Lancashire and Staffordshire. The surname Hulton belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Hulton Early Origins



The surname Hulton was first found in Lancashire at Little Hulton where "the Hultons were the early lords." [1]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." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

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]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Hulton Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Hulton has been recorded under many different variations, including Hulton, Hultone and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Hulton or a variant listed above:

Hulton Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • James Hulton settled in New Hampshire in 1718
  • Penny Hulton settled in Boston in 1767
  • Mathew Hulton arrived in Pennsylvania in 1772

Hulton Settlers in United States in the 19th Century

  • Patrick Hulton, who arrived in New York, NY in 1816
  • Jonathan Hulton, who landed in Allegany (Allegheny) County, Pennsylvania in 1829

Hulton Settlers in Canada in the 18th Century

  • James Hulton, aged 15, arrived in Fort Cumberland, Nova Scotia in 1775

Motto

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.
