Early Origins of the Huchenson family
The surname Huchenson was first found in Northumberland. The family originated at Castle Cronenberg in Norway about 900 A.D. Hutchin, a Viking noble accompanied Harold Harfager who settled on the north east coast at Bishop Middleham in Northumberland. Later some of the family were found in Yorkshire as the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list: Mathew Huchonson; Isota Huchonson; Willelmus Hugehonson; and Mathew Huchonson.  "In the 17th century the Hutchinsons held property around the city of Durham; at that time they were the most numerous and respectable of the yeomanry of the village of Bishop Middleham, but in the 18th century many of them migrated to Stockton and Whitton in the same county."
