Houthwhyte 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Houthwhytes to arrive in North America: members who immigrated to the New World in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
