The history of the name Hodd dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from a member of the family who worked as a maker of hoods. The surname Hodd is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood, and hodde, which all come from the Old English word hod, which means hood. Occasionally, Hodd may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hodd were among those contributors:
