Hatting is a name that was carried to England
in the great wave of migration from Normandy
following the Norman Conquest
of 1066. The Hatting family lived in Hatton, Cheshire
. Another derivation of the name suggests that it comes from the Germanic personal name Hatto,
which is composed of the element hadu,
which means strife
or contention. CITATION[CLOSE]
Hanks, Patricia and Flavia Hodges, A Dictionary of Surnames. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1988. Print. (ISBN 0-19-211592-8)
Although both are valid, time has confused the two definitions and historians now disagree on which is valid in any individual case.

Migration of the Hatting family to the New World and Oceana
at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Hattings to arrive on North American shores:

The Hatting Motto
The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.
Motto: Nil conscire sibi
Motto Translation: To have a conscience free from guilt.
