Origen: Normando. Holmes is a name of ancient Anglo-Saxon origin and comes from the family once having lived in an area that was referred to as a holme, a slightly raised islet in a fen or partially surrounded by a stream or river. The surname Holmes was originally derived from the Old English word Holen. First found in Lancashire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name Holmes in Ireland was brought by settlers from Scotland to the Province of Ulster during the seventeenth century. This name was also adopted by a number of native Gaelic Mac Thomais Septs who also changed their native name to Thomson and Combs. MacComish and Cavish are other variants.
