Where did the English Hutt family come from? What is the English Hutt family crest and coat of arms? When did the Hutt family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Hutt family history?

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, and hodde, 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.


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.

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.

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:
