Early Origins of the Attryde family
The surname Attryde was first found in Cambridgeshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The family name was first referenced in the year 1272 when Thomas Attree held estates in that shire. But many of the family were also found in Sussex
. The name is derived from the expression "At-the-Tree." CITATION[CLOSE]

Attryde 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 Attryde include Attree, Attry, Attrie, Attry, Atree, Atry, Atrye, Attrye, Hattry, Hatry and many more.

Migration of the Attryde family to the New World and Oceana
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 Attryde were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Jacob Hattry, who arrived in New York in 1845; August Hatry, who was naturalized in Mississippi in 1879; and Julius Hatry, who was naturalized in Indiana between 1882 and 1886..
