Hutton History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The present generation of the Hutton family is only the most recent to bear a name that dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from having lived in the regions of Hutton. There are no fewer than twenty-nine parishes or townships in England named Hutton.

Early Origins of the Hutton family

The surname Hutton 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." [1] 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." [1]

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. [2] Literally this place name means "farmstead on a spur of land," from the Old English words "hoh" + "tun." [3]

The Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 included there two early spellings of the family: Thomas de Hoton, Lincolnshire; and John de Hoton in Northumberland. And the Yorkshire Poll Tax Rolls of 1379 listed: William de Hoton; Ricardus de Hoton; and Alexander de Hoton as all holding lands there at that time. [4]

Further to the north in Scotland, "Symon de Hotun was juror on an inquest held before the sheriff of Lanark, 1263 and John Hudton was abbot of Cupar in 1460." [5]

Hutton Spelling Variations

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 Hutton include Hutton, Hutten and others.
