This surname was also derived form the Old English word Harte which was a nickname. Often nicknames described strong traits or attributes that people wished to emulate in a specific animal.

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Hurtt were among those contributors: Toby Hurt, who sailed to Virginia in 1623; Robert Hurt to Barbados in 1635; Richard Hurt to Somers Island in 1635; Edward Hurt to Virginia in 1650; John Hurt to Bermuda in 1662.
