Cutshaw is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from a baptismal name meaning the son of Cuthbert.

The surname Cutshaw was first found in Cambridgeshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Cutshaw has been recorded under many different variations, including Cutts, Cutt, Cut, Cuts, Cuttes, Cutte and others.

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Cutshaw or a variant listed above: Richard Cutt who settled in Portsmouth New Hampshire in 1630; Roger Cutts settled in Virginia in 1635.
