A Little About The Name Hole


HOLE is supposedly of Welsh origin. At a date unknown by this researcher, the family immigrated from Wales to England and became English.

Huw - (HYOO) Welsh version of Hugh, from Old German hugi "intelligence, spirit". Hew, Hewe, Hu.

Howells - (hew-el; sometimes said rhyming with towel) from the Welsh personal name Hywel, anglicized to Howell. Hoel, Hoell, HOLE, Holl, Howel, Howell, Howes, Hywel, Powell.

Please note, that there are probably many other children born to these couples listed here. At this time, I do not have this information. For now, this is mostly my husband's direct line (marked thusly: with other interesting side notes and marriages. For a more complete list of the folks I know about, please see my contribution to this research and others at Worldconnect under "Red Bird Acres".
