The ancestors of the name Huton date back to the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the Huton family lived in the regions of Hutton. There are no fewer than twenty-nine parishes or townships in England named Hutton.

Huton Early Origins



The surname Huton was first found in Lancashire at Hutton, a township, in the parish of Penwortham, union of Preston, hundred of Leyland. An early charter or "inspeximus," in the 7th and 8th year of King Richard II.'s reign, mentions various charters of the abbey of St. Mary, Cockersand. One of those charters lists Helias, son of Roger de Hoton, as holding a grant from a "distant period" to a house and three carucates of land in "Hottun," in "Leylondeschire." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
Essentially, it was a grant for the whole town of Hottun. Priest-Hutton is another township in Lancashire. "The manor is mentioned in the Domesday Survey, and belonged to the Saxon Gilmichel. Adam de Hoton was one of the witnesses to Walter de Lyndesay's charter of liberties to Warton." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Huton or a variant listed above:
