Duttone is one of the names that was brought to England in the wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Duttone family lived in Dutton, Lancashire. Today Dutton is a civil parish and village within the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester, but this parish dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Duntune and literally meant "farmstead at a hill" from the Old English words dun + tun.

Dutton is also a civil parish in the Borough of Ribble Valley in Lancashire.

Duttone Early Origins



The surname Duttone was first found in Lancashire where Odard Dutton, nephew of Hugh Lupus was granted the lands of the Barony of Dutton in 1066. He was directly descended from William, Earl of Eu, who married a niece of William the Conqueror. Dutton in Cheshire was an ancient family seat.

"This place, called in Domesday Book Duntune, was the seat of the family of Dutton, who exercised peculiar authority over the musicians and minstrels of the county, under a grant from the Lacys, barons of Walton, requiring them to pay suit and service at a court held before the lord of Dutton, or his deputy, at Chester, every year on Midsummer-day, and to take out a licence for the exercise of their calling." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

The township of Ness in Chester was at one time of significance to the family. "This place is mentioned in Domesday Survey as being part of the possessions of Walter de Vernon; in the time of Richard II., it was held by the Duttons under the king as Earl of Chester, in capite, by military service." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
However the family did not hold the lands for long as "on the marriage of the heiress of that family, 7th James I., to the heir of Thomas, Lord Gerard, Ness became the property of the Gerards, of Gerard's Bromley." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.

Again in Cheshire, one branch of the family was found at Appleton with Hull. "The manor, with its hamlets of Hull and Stockton, belonged in the reign of Henry III. to Geffrey Dutton, and subsequently passed, with Budworth, to Sir Peter Warburton, Bart. Bradley, another manor, was given by Geffrey, son of Adam de Dutton, to the ancestor of Thomas Daniers or Daniel, whose daughter and heiress, in the reign of Edward III., brought it by marriage to the Savage family." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Duttone Spelling Variations



Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Duttone family name include Dutton, Duton, Duttone and others.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Duttone family to immigrate North America: John Dutton who arrived in America in 1630 and Thomas Dutton who arrived soon after, settling in Reading.
