The distinguished surname Huckes is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It is thought to be derived from the Old English personal name "Ucca," a pet-form of "Uhtraed." Alternatively, it may be related to the Old English "hoc," meaning "hook"; in this case, the name would probably refer to someone with a hooked or bent figure.

Huckes Early Origins



The surname Huckes was first found in Yorkshire, where Gamel filius Hucca was recorded in 1185. As the name has patronymic and nickname origins, it is likely to have emerged independently in several different places during the Middle Ages, thus creating several different founding branches of the Huckes family.

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 Huckes, or a variant listed above: Alexr. Hux, who was granted land in Virginia in 1648; Fouck Hucks, who sailed from London to Virginia in 1723; Elizabeth Hucks, who arrived in Baltimore in 1834.
