Maghoit is an Anglo-Saxon name. The name was originally given to a maker of hoods. The surname Maghoit 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, Maghoit may be a local surname derived from the settlement of Hood in Rattery in Devon.

Maghoit Early Origins



The surname Maghoit was 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.

The Great Migration



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 Maghoit arrived in North America very early: Adam Hood who settled in New Jersey in 1685; John Hood settled in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1630; Thomas Hood settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1682.
