The Anglo-Saxon name Huntingt comes from when the family resided 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.

Huntingt Early Origins



The surname Huntingt 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Huntingt or a variant listed above: 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..
