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.

Nottage Early Origins



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."
