Hultume History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancestors of the Hultume surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in either of the settlements called Hulton in the counties of Lancashire and Staffordshire. [1] The place name literally means "the hill farmstead or estate. The Lancashire Hulton occurs as Hilton and Hulton in the 13th century. " [2]

"Hulton is in the parish of Dean (co. Lancaster) and it gave name to Bleythen, called de Hulton, in the reign of Henry II., and from him this ancient family, still seated at their ancestral and original manor, are regularly descended." [3] [4]

Early Origins of the Hultume family

The surname Hultume was first found in the town of Lancashire at Little Hulton where "the Hultons were the early lords." [5] 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, Esquire, 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." [5]

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." [5]

One of the first records of the family was Jordan de Hulton, rector of the church of St. Elphin, Warrington, Lancashire c. 1250. [6]

Migration of the Hultume family

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: James Hulton settled in New Hampshire in 1718; Penny Hulton settled in Boston in 1767; Mathew Hulton arrived in Pennsylvania in 1772.



The Hultume 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.
