It was among those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain that the name Huckle was formed. The name was derived from the Old English name Ucca, which is a pet form of the Old English personal name Uhtræd. The surname Huckle features the common diminutive suffix -el. The surname Huckle is sometimes derived from the village of Hochenale in Nottinghamshire.

Huckle Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Huckle include Hucknall, Hucknell, Hucknal, Hucknel, Huckle, Huckell and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Huckle were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
