Huthwaite is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree.

Huthwaite Early Origins



The surname Huthwaite was first found in North Lancashire, where Heathwaite is still a township in the parish of Kirkby-Ireleth. Another local in Cumberland is now lost, but Huthwaite is still a small village in Nottinghamshire. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Huthwaite were among those contributors: members who immigrated to the New World in the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
