The ancestry of the name Nuce dates from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It comes from when the family lived near a yew tree. Nuce is a local surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. In this case, the surname Nuce comes from the Old English phrase, atten ew, which means, at the yew tree. The surname Nuce may also derive from the Old English word newe, which means new. This may have been a name given to newcomers to an area, and as such, it would have been a nickname surname.

Nuce Early Origins



The surname Nuce was first found in Cambridgeshire. Castle Newe was a mansion house, situated in Aberdeenshire, built in 1831 by Archibald Simpson. Newe House, a manor house in the village of Pakenham, Suffolk remains today as it was built in 1622 by Sir Robert Bright. Neither of these edifices have any relation to the surname.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Nuce, or a variant listed above:
