The ancestry of the name Houththwate dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived in the village of Houthwait which is now referred to as Heathwaite in the region of Furness. Houththwate is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Houththwate Early Origins



The surname Houththwate was first found in North Lancashire, where Heathwaite is still a township in the parish of Kirkby-Ireleth. Another local in Cumberland is now lost, but Huthwaite is still a small village in Nottinghamshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Houththwate, or a variant listed above: members who immigrated to the New World in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
