The history of the Huneycutt family name begins after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Somerset, at the manor of Hunecote or Hunnecota, from where they took their name.

Huneycutt Early Origins



The surname Huneycutt was first found in Somerset where conjecturally they are descended from William, a Norman noble who was a subtenant of Roger de Courseulles, and was Lord of the manor of Hunecote or Hunnecota, and was recorded in the Domesday Book taken in the year 1086, and the manor is recorded as being "two nuns, as a royal grant." The township of Huncoat in Lancashire also derived its name from the ancient family. "This was a royal manor in the reign of the Confessor, who, in the great survey, is recorded to have held two carucates in 'Hunnicott.' James de Huncote, and John his son, occur in the reign of Edward I.; the Hall was occupied by this family." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Huneycutt Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Honycott, Hunnicott, Huncote, Honicote, Honeycott, Honeycutt, Hunnicot and many more.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Huneycutt or a variant listed above were: William Huncote settled in Virginia in 1635.
