Early Origins of the Allnote family
The surname Allnote was first found in Oxfordshire. The "Sire de Alnei" was one of the five knights who, at the battle of Hastings, "challenged Harold the King to come forth, and said to the English, 'Stay! stay! where is your King? he that perjured himself to William? He is a dead man, if we find him.'"

Migration of the Allnote family
Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Allnote, or a variant listed above: William Allnutt, who settled in Maryland in 1748; Thomas Allnutt, who settled in Virginia with his wife in 1623; and Frederick Allnutt who settled in Iowa in 1883.
