Hoddinett Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hoddinett or a variant listed above: Humphrey Hadnett settled in Virginia in 1635; Charles and James Hodnett arrived in Philadelphia in 1856; Francis Hadnett arrived in Boston in 1767; William Hadnett arrived in Philadelphia in 1864..
