The name Huntt is rooted in the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It was originally a name for someone who worked as a hunter. The surname Huntt is derived from the Old English word hunta, which means hunter.

Huntt Early Origins

Early records of the name include Humphrey le Hunte, who was in the Feat of Fines of Sussex in 1203; and Ralphe Hunte, listed in the Assize Rolls of Yorkshire of 1219.

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Huntt or a variant listed above: Alice Hunt, who settled in Virginia in 1654; Edward Hunt, who settled in Virginia in 1655; James Hunt, who settled in Virginia in 1636; John Hunt, who settled in Virginia in 1622.
