Meaning, Origin, Etymology
English, Scottish, Irish, German, and Scandinavian: from Middle English hall (Old English heall), Middle High German halle, Old Norse holl all meaning 'hall' (a spacious residence), hence a topographic name for someone who lived in or near a hall or an occupational name for a servant employed at a hall or manor. Field, Castle and Stone are other common examples of local names of this type. Not all Halls derived from this source though. (English) Dweller in, or near, the manor house; servant in the principal room of the manor house; dweller at the rock or stone, generally a boundary marker. A manor house. In medieval documents, Atte Halle, Del Hall, De Aula, &c. The principal apartment in all old mansions was the hall, and in feudal times it was a petty court of justice as well as the scene of entertainment. The chief servitor when the lord was resident, or the tenant when he was non-resident, would naturally acquire such a surname; and hence its frequency. Nearly 300 traders so called appear in the Lond. Direct. From the Old Norse, Hallr; from the Swedish, Hall; from the Flemish, Hal; a personal name. A variant of MacCaul, q.v. Hall without the prefix Mac in English. Parishes in Cheshire and Staffordshire. The name occurs in the north-east of England, and it seems that here the name Hall is a local name derived from the Old Norse for a ‘boulder or slope’ and was given to someone who lived on, near or under some prominent boulder or hillside. The surname Hall goes back to early feudal times. One Warin de Halla is mentioned in the 1178 Pipe Rolls for Essex, and two examples of the name appear in the Hundred Rolls of 1273. Or De Clarefai. The learned Joseph Hall, Bishop of Norwich, was son of Hall, seneschal to the Earl of Huntingdon, President of the North, and by his arms is identified as one of the Lincolnshire family of Halls of Grantham, the ancestor of which, on marriage with an heiress of the Halls, assumed the name and arms. William Fitzwilliam, son of Thomas, and brother of John Fitzwilliam, 14th cent., was the person alluded to who took the name of Hall, as appears from the Lincoln Visitation, 1592. See Fitzwilliam.

THE HALL FAMILY OF WEST RIVER AND KINDRED FAMILIES
The Hall family is a very old one in England. Tradition tells us that the first Hall came over from Normandy, with William the Conqueror, at the time of the Norman Conquest in 1066. The first one who crossed the Channel with William, was called de Halle, signifying of the Hall, therefore they were close to the ruler. In other words they were personal or body guards. The name gradually became Angelicized to Hall. According to Mrs. Hattie Perkins Marine, who I think is descended from Benjamin Hall, son of Rev. Henry Hall, "This English branch trace origin to Thomas del Hall of Norley, grandson of John de Aula de Kingsley, Norleigh, A.D., 1216. This Thomas del Hall married Margery, daughter of Sir William de Brereton, Knight of Brereton Castle, County Chester; and had a son named for him, who married Mary, daughter of Sir Peter le Roter de Thornton, of Thornton.
"John del Hall, the second, of Norley, married the daughter of Sir Rozer Maynwaryngl, Knight and escheater of Cheshire; and had a son Thomas Hall. He in the year 1500, tore down the ancestral Castle and rebuilt it. He was Colonel of a regiment, raised among his tenantry, with which he marched against the Northumbrian rebels in 1569. Thomas Hall married the co-heiress of Sir John Egerton, of Egerton Hall and Oulton Park, County Chester. Mr. Hall left large estates for the poor of Norley, and the surrounding county. His grandson Peter, who as a Royalist Malignant, was obliged to compound for his estates, by paying a heavy fine to the Commonwealth. Thornton Hall of Horsham was the father of Henry Hall." Mrs. Marine is wrong in saying that Thornton Hall was the father of Rev. Henry Hall, his father was Robert Hall. You will see later on, that I have absolute proof of this. I do not know where Mrs. Marine obtained this data. Nor do I know whether it has been verified. I cannot say that it is correct, and that we are descended from this particular line.
It is possible that Thornton Hall was an uncle of Rev. Henry Hall. There are two points in favor of Mrs. Marine's contention. The first is that she is descended from Benjamin Hall, and that the name Thornton comes down through the Benjamin Hall line. It is possible that he might have carried it on, from his English uncle. Another point is, that in a book I had on the Hall families of England; (which I regret to say was out of print, when it was burned in Lochlea house in 1925) gives the Halls of Horsham, the right to the Coat of Arms. This shows that they must have at least been Knights. Also both Thornton Hall, and Robert Hall, Rev. Henry Hall's father, were from Horsham. I feel that there is enough probability in Mrs. Marine's theory to record it here. I will leave it to the reader to decide.
There are twenty-six distinct families of Halls in England. Our immediate branch comes from the Halls of Sullington and Horsham. Horsham is a charming English town, about thirty miles south of London, in Sussex; just below Epsom Downs, where the celebrated English Derby is run.
When I was married in 1910, I visited Horsham, and in Saint Mary's, the Parish Church of Horsham, I found the baptismal record of Henry, the son of Robert and Ann Craig Hall. Henry was born June 17, 1676, and baptised June 29, 1676. Saint Mary's Church is a lovely Gothic Church of the Thirteenth Century. Anyone interested in the Hall family who happens to be in London, should take the time off and visit this lovely spot; they would be well repaid.
Henry graduated from Peterhouse, Cambridge University, at the age of twenty-one. Mr. Percy Skirvin in his book, entitled, "The First Parishes of the Province of Maryland" says on page 126 that Rev. Henry Hall was Rector of Christ Church Parish, Calvert County, 1695 to 1697; and on page 127, Rev. Henry Hall officiated in All Saints Parish, Calvert County, in 1694. From this one is led to believe that he officiated, as a clergyman at the tender age of eighteen years. I know people matured early in those days but I could not think that they matured quite that early. So I wrote to Mr. Skirvin, asking him where he obtained his data. He referred me to photostatic copies of Rev. Ethan Allen's manuscripts, now in the Episcopal Library, in the Peabody Institute, Baltimore. I went to Baltimore and examined the papers myself. I found that in that point Mr. Skirvin was correct. Still I was not satisfied, and felt, that although Rev. Ethan Allen is considered one of the best authorities on early Maryland church history, he must have erred in this particular case.
Wishing to be absolutely correct, I wrote to Peterhouse, Cambridge University; and received the following extract from "Admissions to Peterhouse, 1615 to 1911." "Feb. 20, 1693. Henricus Hall, Sussexiensis, in Schola publica de Horsham educatus, annosque natus 18 examinatur et approbatur per Praefectum et Decanos; Admittiturque in ordinem Sizatorum, sub Tutore et fidejuss. Mro Bickerton. B.A. 1697."
After a good deal of trouble to my friends, and with the help of a Mediaevalist Latin Scholar, of Johns Hopkins University, I was able to obtain the following translation: "Henry Hall of Sussex, educated in the public schools of Horsham, aged 18 years, examined and approved, by the Perfect and Deacons; admitted as a Sizatorum, (a scholar paying reduced fees and formerly charged with certain menial offices) sponsored and guaranteed by Mr. Bickerton. Received his B.A. 1697." This establishes beyond the shadow of a doubt, that he did not graduate until 1697, and therefore, could not have officiated at either All Saints or Christ Church, prior to that date.
I also received the following data, from the Public Record Office, in London. From the Calendar of Treasury Books, October 1697 to August 1698, Page 214, under date of January 11, 1697/8, there is calendared a Money Warrant for 20 pounds, each to Henry Hall and other persons named, "as royal bounty for the charges of their exploration to Maryland, whither they are going as Chaplains." The Money Order thereon is dated January 14, 1697/8.
As that was the before the calendar was changed, he received the money for his passage to Maryland, on January 14, 1698, evidently sailing to Maryland sometime after that. This bears ou the family tradition, that he arrived in Maryland, in the spring of 1698.
From the records of the province we find that he was sent to Maryland, by Henry, Lord Bishop of London. On May 7, 1698 under the mandate of Francis Nicholson, Governor of the Province of Maryland, was formally inducted as the first Rector of Saint James Parish. He became Rector of Saint James, before he was twenty-two years old. ..................
