The name Hoddinott reached England in the great wave of migration following the Norman Conquest of 1066. It is based on the Norman name Odinet, from which the more commonly known Odo is derived.

Hoddinott Early Origins



The surname Hoddinott was first found in Shropshire at Hodnet, a village and civil parish in the union of Drayton, in the hundred of North Bradford. The first record of the place name was found in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Odenet. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Apart from the aforementioned patronymic origin, the place name could also mean "pleasant valley," from the Welsh "hawdd" meaning "pleasant" or "peaceful" and "nant," a "glen or valley." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

Hoddinott Spelling Variations



The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries. For that reason, spelling variations are common among many Anglo-Norman names. The shape of the English language was frequently changed with the introduction of elements of Norman French, Latin, and other European languages; even the spelling of literate people's names were subsequently modified. Hoddinott has been recorded under many different variations, including Hodenet, Hignett, Hignet, Hodnet, Hodnett, Hodenett, Hodinett, Hodinutt, Hodinut, Hodinott, Hodinot, Hoddenett, Hoddinet, Hoddinutt and many more.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



To escape the uncertainty of the political and religious uncertainty found in England, many English families boarded ships at great expense to sail for the colonies held by Britain. The passages were expensive, though, and the boats were unsafe, overcrowded, and ridden with disease. Those who were hardy and lucky enough to make the passage intact were rewarded with land, opportunity, and social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families went on to be important contributors to the young nations of Canada and the United States where they settled. Hoddinotts were some of the first of the immigrants to arrive in North America:
