|Origin of Hamlin, Meaning of Hamlin
Origin: The name Hamblen, Hamblin, or Hamlin, usually spelled at the present time in the last manner, is supposed to be of Germanic origin, but the name has long been found in New England, and Alice (Hamblin) Kreps seems to have been of old New England ancestry in many lines. Hamelin is still a common name in France, and is found among French Canadians. Several of the name are said to have gone in the army of William the Conqueror to England in 1066, and the name has since been common in England. Anciently spelled Hameline, a later form was Hamlyn, and other forms are found. Several of this name have come to America from England, with a few from Ireland and Scotland, and some from France. They settled in New England and the south; the name has been found in New Jersey, but that family is thought to be of New England descent. One family is especially associated with Connecticut, and is probably related to the Cape Cod family. By far the largest family of the name is of Cape Cod, Massachusetts, descent, the immigrant, James, having come from London, England, and settled at Barnstable, Massachusetts, in 1639. To this family it is most probable that the Hamblins now under consideration pertain. From it have come Hannibal Hamlin, vice-president of tHistory of West Virginia
