Hughiston History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The ancient Dalriadan clans of Scotland spawned the name Hughiston. It is derived from the "son of little Hugh."

Migration of the Hughiston family

Many settled along the east coast of what would become the United States and Canada. As the American War of Independence broke out, those who remained loyal to the crown went north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists.
