Common English spellings of Haltom family name: Haultum, Haltum, Halton, Hulton

The Hultons came from Wales to Lancashire in 1167. Richard Hulton had freehold lands -- a 1,316 acre park

The Hultons of Westhoughton:
It is recordeth that lorweth and Madoc Hulton, came to Bolton from Wales in 1167. In 1304 Richard de Hulton, of Hulton Park south-west of Bolton in Westhoughton, is recorded as having freehold of lands in the districts of Huton, Ordsall, Flixton and Heaton. At Hulton he built Hulton Hall, which, by the late 19th century was surrounded by a 1,316 acre park of plantations and pleasure grounds with 4 acres of water. The estate which is rich in coal mines was the sole property of the Hulton's of Hulton Park.

The old Hulton family was highly respected, influential and long lasting. The last surviving member of the Hulton family, Sir Geoffrey Hulton, died only a few years ago after more than eight centuries dominating the land west of Bolton. It was in 1819, at the infamous "Peterloo Massacre," that magistrate William Hulton ordered the Yeomanry Cavalry to arrest Orator William Hunt as he addressed the great demonstration at St. Peter's Field in Manchester, thus setting off a train the events which were to go down in history as a less than glorious event.


The ancestors of the bearers of the Haltom family name are thought to have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in Halton, a very common place-name in England. The place-name is derived from the Old English terms halh, which means nook or corner of land, and tun, which meant farm or enclosure and later came to mean fortress and town. The name means "farm in the nook or corner of land." The surname denotes a dweller of same.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Haltom include Halton, Haltone, Hulaham, Haltom, Haltum and others.

First founds in Lancashire where they were seated from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquestand the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them travelled under extremely harsh conditions; overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive deceased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest properity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the deveopment of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Haltom or a variant listed above.

James Haltom who arrived in Philadelphia in 1853.

James Haltom arrived in Maryland in 1775.

John Haltom arrived in Potomack in 1747.
