Early Origins of the Huttan family
The surname Huttan 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." CITATION[CLOSE]

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." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Huttan family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Huttans to arrive in North America: Francis and Elizabeth Hutton settled in Virginia in 1623; John Hutton settled in Barbados in 1680 with his wife and five children; Oliver Hutton also settled in Barbados in the same year with his wife, children and servants.
