The distinguished surname Hust is one of the many surnames that first came to England in the wake of the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name is derived from the Old French "oste" or "hoste," meaning "host," and was most likely first borne by an inn-keeper.

Hust Early Origins



The surname Hust was first found in Somerset during the Middle Ages, when hereditary surnames first began to appear in England. Due to the occupational origins of Hust, it is likely that the surname emerged independently in different regions during the medieval period, creating several early branches of the Hust family. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Elias le Host, who was listed in the 1254 Assize Rolls of Somerset.

Hust 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 Host, Hoste, Ost, Hust and others.

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 Hust or a variant listed above were:
