Hotchin History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The descendents of Viking settlers in ancient Scotland were the first to use the name Hotchin. It was derived from Huchon, a diminutive form of Hugh. Patronymic surnames arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions. This name is the equivalent of Hugh in the vernacular of Scotland.

Early Origins of the Hotchin family


The surname Hotchin was first found in Ross-shire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rois) a former county, now part of the Council Areas of Highland and Western Isles in Northern Scotland, which emerged from the Gaelic lordship of the Earl of Ross, where they held a family seat from very ancient times.
