Early Origins of the Alnutt family
The surname Alnutt was first found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 11th when they held estates in that shire.

The recorded variations of Alnutt include Allnutt, Alnott, Allnott, Alnath, Alnatt, Allnatt, Alner, Alnot, Alnut, Alnod, Alnud, Alnett, Allnett, Alnet, Elnod, Allno, Alnoe, Allnoe, Almot, Alneot and many more.

Alnutt migration to the United States
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Alnutt were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
