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. Occasionally, Hut may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

Hut Early Origins



The surname Hut was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Hut Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Hut include Hood, Hoods, Hude, Hud, Hudd, Hode, Hoode and others.

The Great Migration



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:

Hut Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • William Hut, who arrived in Maryland in 1669

Hut Settlers in United States in the 18th Century

  • Peter Hut, who landed in Pennsylvania in 1752

Hut Settlers in United States in the 19th Century
