Nottage History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Nottage name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family lived at the knot, the summit of a rocky hill, from the residence near that place.

The surname Nottage was first found in Derbyshire where traditionally the name was descended from the Scandinavian King Canute, or Cnut. Drayton sings "The Knot that called was Canutus, bird of old, of that great King of Danes, his name that still doth hold, his appetite to please that far and near was sought, for his, as some have said, from Denmark hither brought."

Migration of the Nottage family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Nottage family emigrate to North America:
