Where did the English Huckleberry family come from? What is the English Huckleberry family crest and coat of arms? When did the Huckleberry family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Huckleberry family history?Huckleberry is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the Old English name Ucca, which is a pet form of the Old English personal name Uhtræd. The surname Huckleberry features the common diminutive suffix -el. The surname Huckleberry is sometimes derived from the village of Hochenale in Nottinghamshire.
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Huckleberry has been recorded under many different variations, including Hucknall, Hucknell, Hucknal, Hucknel, Huckle, Huckell and many more.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Huckleberry or a variant listed above: William Huckle, who sailed to Barbados in 1635; Andrew Huckle to Virginia in 1643; and John Huckle to America in 1764.
The Huckleberry Family Crest was acquired from the Houseofnames.com archives. The Huckleberry Family Crest was drawn according to heraldic standards based on published blazons. We generally include the oldest published family crest once associated with each surname.
