Holle Coat of Arms / Holle Family Crest

The surname of HOLLE was a locational name 'the dweller at the hole' the cavity, or the hollow, from residence therein or besides an open rock or hollow. Local names usually denoted where a man held his land and indicated where he actually lived. The name is also spelt HOLLES, HOLL, HOLES, HOLE and HOLL. Early records of the name mention William de la Hole, 1200, County Durham. Richard de la Hole, was recorded in the year 1273 in the County of Oxford. Hugh del Hole was documented in Wakefield, Yorkshire in 1296. Willelmus in le Hole, of Yorkshire was listed in the Yorkshire Poll Tax of 1379. John Hole and Sarah Andrews were married in London in the year 1626. John Hole married Sarah Andrews at St. George's, Hanover Square, London in the year 1806. At first the coat of arms was a practical matter which served a function on the battlefield, and in tournaments. With his helmet covering his face, and armour encasing the knight from head to foot, the only means of identification for his followers, was the insignia painted on his shield and embroidered on his surcoat, the draped and flowing garment worn over the armour. Denzill HOLLES, 1st Baron (circa.1599 - 1680) was the English politician. He was prominent in the parliamentary opposition to Charles I, he was imprisoned (1628-30) for helping to hold the speaker in his chair to prevent the adjournment of parliament until the three resolutions of Sir John Eliot had been passed. HOLLES fought in the Civil War but, a moderate fled to France (1648) when the army gained the upper hand. He returned in 1653 and participated in the Restoration, joining the Privy Council (1661). In the Middle Ages the Herald (old French herault) was an officer whose duty it was to proclaim war or peace, carry challenges to battle and messages between sovereigns; nowadays war or peace is still proclaimed by the heralds, but their chief duty as court functionaries is to superintend state ceremonies, such as coronations, installations, and to grant arms. Edward III (1327-1377) appointed two heraldic kings-at-arms for south and north, England in 1340. The English College of Heralds was incorporated by Richard III in 1483-84.
