The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 added many new elements to an already vibrant culture. Among these were thousands of new names. The Honeycutt family lived in Somerset, at the manor of Hunecote or Hunnecota, from where they took their name.

Honeycutt Early Origins



The surname Honeycutt was first found in Somerset where conjecturally they are descended from William, a Norman noble who was a subtenant of Roger de Courseulles, and was Lord of the manor of Hunecote or Hunnecota, and was recorded in the Domesday Book taken in the year 1086, and the manor is recorded as being "two nuns, as a royal grant." The township of Huncoat in Lancashire also derived its name from the ancient family. "This was a royal manor in the reign of the Confessor, who, in the great survey, is recorded to have held two carucates in 'Hunnicott.' James de Huncote, and John his son, occur in the reign of Edward I.; the Hall was occupied by this family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Honeycutt Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Honycott, Hunnicott, Huncote, Honicote, Honeycott, Honeycutt, Hunnicot and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Honeycutt or a variant listed above:
