About the Hollins surname

The Hollins surname means by the Hollies--holly bushes or trees. It consequently is not geographic specific, but seems to be most common in the midlands of England-Cheshire, Staffordshire and later, Lancashire. It is possible that it arose in Cheshire prior to 1066, and possibly even earlier than the Angl0-Saxon arrival in England.

Spelling variations abound--Hawlings, Hallings, as do related names: Hollinshead, Hollingshead, and in some parish records Hollins. appears to have substituted for the longer version of the name Hollinshead.
