The recorded variations of Hooton include Hooton, Hootton, Hooten, Hootten and others.

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned.

The Hooton were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
