An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The roots of the Hutcheons family name are in ancient Scotland with the Viking settlers. Hutcheons 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.

Hutcheons Early Origins



The surname Hutcheons 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.

The Great Migration



In North America, the monarchy was thousands of miles away and Scots were free to settle on their own land and practice their own beliefs. The American War of Independence provided an opportunity for these settlers to pay back the English monarchy and forge a new nation. Recently, this heritage has survived through North American highland games and Clan societies. Early North American immigration and passenger lists have revealed a number of people bearing the name Hutcheons or a variant listed above: Jeremiah Houchin, who sailed to New England in 1630; Tobias Hutchins settled in St. John's, Newfoundland in 1682; George Hutchings was given an estate in St. John's Newfoundland in 1762.
