The name Hudnet was brought to England by the Normans when they conquered the country in 1066. It comes from the Norman name Odinet, from which the more commonly known Odo is derived.

Hudnet Early Origins



The surname Hudnet was first found in Shropshire at Hodnet, a village and civil parish in the union of Drayton, in the hundred of North Bradford. The first record of the place name was found in the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was listed as Odenet. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Apart from the aforementioned patronymic origin, the place name could also mean "pleasant valley," from the Welsh "hawdd" meaning "pleasant" or "peaceful" and "nant," a "glen or valley." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



In England at this time, the uncertainty of the political and religious environment of the time caused many families to board ships for distant British colonies in the hopes of finding land and opportunity, and escaping persecution. The voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, though, and many arrived in North America sick, starved, and destitute. Those who did make it, however, were greeted with greater opportunities and freedoms that they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make important contributions to the young nations in which they settled. Early immigration records have shown some of the first Hudnets to arrive on North American shores: Humphrey Hadnett, who sailed to Virginia in 1635; Elizabeth and James Hignett sailed to Maryland in 1666; John Hignett to Maryland in 1675; Francis Hadnett arrived in Boston Massachusetts in 1767.
