The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Huddleston has been spelled many different ways, including Huddleston, Hoddleston, Hodleston, Hiddleston, Hiddlestone and many more.

First found in Cumberland, where they originally held Millom Castle at Millom, now in Cumbria. Godard be Boyvill was granted a manor on the site and held the Manor of Millom c. 1134. His granddaughter married into the Hudleston family and ownership was passed in c. 1240. John Hudleston was given a licence to crenellate in 1335. Over the centuries the castle has fallen into ruin and is now used as a farmhouse.

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 Huddlestons to arrive in North America:

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Soli Deo honor et gloria
Motto Translation: Honour and glory be to God alone.
