The ancestors of the Hunntington surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. The name comes from when they lived in the settlement of Huntingdon in the county of Huntingdonshire, or in one of the various places called Huntington in Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, and the North Riding of Yorkshire.

Hunntington Early Origins



The surname Hunntington was first found in Huntingdon in Huntingdonshire. "This place, called by the Saxons Huntantun, and in the Norman survey Huntersdune, appears to have derived its name from its situation in a tract of country which was anciently an extensive forest abounding with deer, and well suited for the purposes of the chase. A castle was built here in 917, by Edward the Elder, and enlarged by David, Earl of Huntingdon and King of Scotland." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Charles Huntington arrived in New England in 1654; Christopher and Margaret Huntington settled in Boston in 1633; with their sons Simon and Thomas; Lydia Huntington settled in Virginia in 1642..
