The history of the Hutten family goes back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture of Britain. It is derived from the family living in the regions of Hutton.
There are no fewer than twenty-nine parishes or townships in England
Early Origins of the Hutten family
The surname Hutten 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]
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." CITATION[CLOSE]

Hoton is a village and civil parish in the Charnwood district of Leicestershire, that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Hohtone. CITATION[CLOSE]

Hutten Spelling Variations
Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon
surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations
. Changes in Anglo-Saxon
names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Hutten include Hutton, Hutten and others.

Migration of the Hutten family to the New World and Oceana
Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Hutten or a variant listed above:
