An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Anglo-Saxons of Britain first developed the name Hoot. It was a name given to someone who was a maker of hoods. The surname Hoot 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, Hoot may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

Hoot Early Origins



The surname Hoot was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Hoot, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: Adam Hood who settled in New Jersey in 1685; John Hood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hood settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682.
