Where did the English Huck family come from? What is the English Huck family crest and coat of arms? When did the Huck family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Huck family history?

The distinguished surname Huck is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is thought to be derived from the Old English personal name "Ucca," a pet-form of "Uhtraed." Alternatively, it may be related to the Old English "hoc," meaning "hook"; in this case, the name would probably refer to someone with a hooked or bent figure.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Huck include Huck, Hucks, Hux, Huckes, Ucke and others.

First found in Yorkshire, where Gamel filius Hucca was recorded in 1185. As the name has patronymic and nickname origins, it is likely to have emerged independently in several different places during the Middle Ages, thus creating several different founding branches of the Huck family.

Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Huck or a variant listed above:
