The name Nottmna is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is a product of when the family lived at the knot, the summit of a rocky hill, from the residence near that place.

Nottmna Early Origins



The surname Nottmna 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."

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Nottmnas to arrive in North America: James Knott who arrived at Virginia in 1617, three years before the "Mayflower"; another James Knott was on record in Virginia in 1623; Eleanor Knott settled in Virginia in 1637.
