Early Origins of the Alnutt family

The surname Alnutt 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.'" [1]

Alnutt Spelling Variations

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. 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.

United States 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:
