The surname Huddleston was derived from a pre-existing place named Huddleston in the West Riding of Yorkshire
. The place name is in turn derived from the Old English personal name Hudel and are said to be originally of Saxon descent.
The surname Huddleston was first found in Cumberland
, where they originally held Millom Castle at Millom, now in Cumbria
. Godard be Boyvill was granted a manor on the site and held the Manor of Millom c. 1134. His granddaughter married into the Hudleston family and ownership was passed in c. 1240. John Hudleston was given a licence to crenellate in 1335. Over the centuries the castle has fallen into ruin and is now used as a farmhouse. The parish of Sawston in Cambridgeshire
was home to a branch of this illustrious family in early times. "The ancient manor-house here of the Huddleston family was visited by Queen Mary, who spent some time in it." 
Spelling variations of this family name include: Huddleston, Hoddleston, Hodleston, Hiddleston, Hiddlestone and many more.
