Hallowell Family Crest

Hallowell Family CrestThe English surname Hallowell, usually found in northern English  in the area around Lancashire, is of  habitational origin, meaning the original bearer was named after the place that they lived. In the case of Hallowell the name is derived from a place near Manchester called Hollowell, from Old English halig  meaning “holy” and  well meaning “a ‘well or a spring.” There are also other towns with similar names in Lancashire such as halliwell and also towns called Holwell in Dorset and Oxfordshire. The first written reference to the name is in Lancashire in the Domesday Book in 1086.
