Nuttal Surname History

The origins of the Nuttal name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Nuttal was originally derived from a family having lived in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nuttal belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Early Origins of the Nuttal family

The surname Nuttal was first found in Nottinghamshire at Nuthall, parish, in the union of Basford, S. division of the wapentake of Broxtow. Nuthall Temple, occupying a commanding site near the village, is a handsome mansion, built in imitation of the Villa Capra, at Vicenza, in Italy, and surrounded by an extensive park embellished with plantations and an artificial lake. [1] The place dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Nutehale. [2] Literally the place name means "nook of land where nut trees grow" from the Old English words "hnutu" + "halh." [3]

United States Nuttal migration to the United States +

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
