Huttyn History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
- Origins Available:
The name Huttyn is of Anglo-Saxon origin and came from when the family lived in the regions of Hutton. There are no fewer than twenty-nine parishes or townships in England named Hutton.
Early Origins of the Huttyn family
The surname Huttyn was first found in Lancashire at Hutton, a township, in the parish of Penwortham, union of Preston, hundred of Leyland. An early charter or "inspeximus," in the 7th and 8th year of King Richard II.'s reign, mentions various charters of the abbey of St. Mary, Cockersand.
One of those charters lists Helias, son of Roger de Hoton, as holding a grant from a "distant period" to a house and three carucates of land in "Hottun," in "Leylondeschire."  Essentially, it was a grant for the whole town of Hottun.
Priest-Hutton is another township in Lancashire. "The manor is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and belonged to the Saxon Gilmichel. Adam de Hoton was one of the witnesses to Walter de Lyndesay's charter of liberties to Warton." 
Hoton is a village and civil parish in the Charnwood district of Leicestershire, that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Hohtone.  Literally this place name means "farmstead on a spur of land," from the Old English words "hoh" + "tun." 
The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included there two early spellings of the family: Thomas de Hoton, Lincolnshire; and John de Hoton in Northumberland. And the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed: William de Hoton; Ricardus de Hoton; and Alexander de Hoton as all holding lands there at that time. 
Further to the north in Scotland, "Symon de Hotun was juror on an inquest held before the sheriff of Lanark, 1263 and John Hudton was abbot of Cupar in 1460."

Migration of the Huttyn family
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Huttyn or a variant listed above: Francis and Elizabeth Hutton settled in Virginia in 1623; John Hutton settled in Barbados in 1680 with his wife and five children; Oliver Hutton also settled in Barbados in the same year with his wife, children and servants.
