Holmes Genealogy & History

Holmes is an English name with ancient origins. It could be a locational name, given to those living at or near a place named "Holm", derived from the Old English word "holm", a piece of dry land in a fen. Alternately, it could be a topographical name, derived from the Norse-Viking "holmr" meaning "island" or "haugum" meaning "hill", or perhaps the Old English "holm tree" (a common meeting place) or "holegn" meaning "holy woods". Holmes family history is first recorded in Lancashire with Roger de Holm (an alternate spelling). Holmes genealogy includes Raymond Holmes, a British fighter pilot who saved Buckingham Palace from the Nazis.
