The story of the Hutcheon family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The name Hutcheon was derived from Huchon, a diminutive form of Hugh. Patronymic surnames arose out of the vernacular and religious given name traditions. This name is the equivalent of Hugh in the vernacular of Scotland.

Hutcheon Early Origins



The surname Hutcheon was first found in Ross-shire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Rois) a former county, now part of the Council Areas of Highland and Western Isles in Northern Scotland, which emerged from the Gaelic lordship of the Earl of Ross, where they held a family seat from very ancient times.
