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


The name Hutcherson was first used by Viking settlers in ancient Scotland. It 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. The suffix son indicates "son of."

Hutcherson Early Origins



The surname Hutcherson was first found in Northumberland. The family originated at Castle Cronenberg in Norway about 900 A.D. Hutchin, a Viking noble accompanied Harold Harfager who settled on the north east coast at Bishop Middleham in Northumberland. Later some of the family were found in Yorkshire as the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 list: Mathew Huchonson; Isota Huchonson; Willelmus Hugehonson; and Mathew Huchonson. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

"In the 17th century the Hutchinsons held property around the city of Durham; at that time they were the most numerous and respectable of the yeomanry of the village of Bishop Middleham, but in the 18th century many of them migrated to Stockton and Whitton in the same county." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]
