An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The origins of the Hutt surname lie with the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. The name Hutt began when someone in that family worked as a maker of hoods. The surname Hutt is derived from the Old English words hod, hud, hood,
which all come from the Old English word hod,
which means hood.
Occasionally, Hutt may be a local
surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.
The surname Hutt was first found in Devon
where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest
and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
One relatively recent invention that did much to standardize English spelling was the printing press. However, before its invention even the most literate people recorded their names according to sound rather than spelling. The spelling variations under which the name Hutt has appeared include Hood, Hoods, Hude, Hud, Hudd, Hode, Hoode and others.

At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England
was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England
at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Hutt arrived in North America very early:
