Hute History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The Hute family name dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. The name comes from when an early member worked as a maker of hoods. The surname Hute 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, Hute may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon. "In the poem 'Robin Hood(e) and Guy(e) of Gisborne' the name is variantly Hood and Hoode; but the form is Hode in 'A Lytell Geste [Story] of Robyn Hode.'" 
"The leader of the Surrey men in A.D. 853 was named Huda (Anglo-Saxon Chron., s.a.)."

Migration of the Hute family
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Hutes to arrive on North American shores: Adam Hood who settled in New Jersey in 1685; John Hood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hood settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682.
