HULSE Family History

This distinguished surname, with several notable entries in the "Dictionary of National Biography", is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a locational name from Hulse, a township in the parish of Great Budworth, Cheshire. Recorded variously as "Holes, Holis" and "Holys" circa 1250 in the Feet of Fines for Cheshire, the place was so called from the Olde English pre 7th Century "hol(u)", hollow, depression, to which was later added the nding "-es". Locational surnames, such as this, were originally given to local landowners, and the lord of the manor, and especially as a means of identification to those who left their birthplace to settle elsewhere.
