Hut History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

Hut is a name that was formed by the Anglo-Saxon society of old Britain. The name was thought to have been used for someone who once worked as a maker of hoods. The surname Hut is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood, and hodde, which all come from the Old English word hod, which means hood. [1] [2]

Occasionally, Hut may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon. "In the poem 'Robin Hood(e) and Guy(e) of Gisborne' the name is variantly Hood and Hoode; but the form is Hode in 'A Lytell Geste [Story] of Robyn Hode.'" [3]

"The leader of the Surrey men in A.D. 853 was named Huda (Anglo-Saxon Chron., s.a.)." [4]

United States Hut migration to the United States +

Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Hut were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
