Origins of surname

This name is believed to be derived from one of the many villages in England called Holm or Holme. The name is particularly common in East Anglia. The name was applied to an area of dry land surrounded by fenland, from the Viking holmr = 'island'.

Early records

The name first appears in Jersey church records in 1801. The first three baptisms are all for children of Mary, but they appear to be three different Marys, married to Francis, Uriah and Thomas. The first couple to establish a family were Thomas and Elizabeth Huelin, from 1825 onwards.
