Huttley History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Huttley belongs to the early history of Britain, it's origins lie with the Anglo-Saxons. It is a product of their having lived in the parish of Oteley found in the counties of Shropshire, Suffolk and the West Riding of Yorkshire.  Huttley is derived from the Old English elements "ote," or "oats" and "leah," meaning "a clearing." 
Otley in the West Riding of Yorkshire as "in the Domesday Survey [as] Othelia, is supposed to have derived the name from Othe or Otho, its Saxon proprietor. It formed the principal portion of an extensive manor or liberty, which was granted by Athelstan to the see of York. The archbishops had a residence here, and their successors to this day are lords of the manor and liberty." 
Early Origins of the Huttley family
The surname Huttley was first found in Suffolk where the first record of the family was found in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 as Richard de Otteleye. Kirby's Quest lists "Henry Otleghe, Somerset, Edward III"  (Henry Otleghe held lands in Somerset during the reign of Edward III.)
Tor de Ottalay was listed in Yorkshire (1148-1156); Thomas de Otteleg was found in the Curia Regis Rolls for 1225 in Suffolk; and Paulinus de Otteley was found in the Feet of Fines for Yorkshire in 1301. 
Later the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed Mary Henry Hotlay as living there at that time.

Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Huttley include Ottley, Otley, Oatley, Oteley, Oatly and others.
