HOWLIN Family History

This early surname recorded in over seventy forms ranging from Hugh, Hew, Hauch, and Gon (!), to Hugett, Hugonneau, and Ughini, is of pre 7th century German origins. The first spelling was as the given name "Hugo" meaning "heart or mind", and as such this spelling appears in the famous English Domesday Book of the year 1086. Perhaps not surprisingly given a meaning of heart or mind, the personal name was highly popular, and by the 12th century was to be found in almost every European country. The surname is recorded in the same period, (see below), the first of all the such hereditary surname recordings being found in England.
