The name Hutchinson was first used by Viking settlers in ancient Scotland

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."
The surname Hutchinson 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
