Nuddal History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms
The name Nuddal first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nuddal belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.
Early Origins of the Nuddal family
The surname Nuddal was first found in Nottinghamshire at Nuthall, parish, in the union of Basford, S. division of the wapentake of Broxtow. Nuthall Temple, occupying a commanding site near the village, is a handsome mansion, built in imitation of the Villa Capra, at Vicenza, in Italy, and surrounded by an extensive park embellished with plantations and an artificial lake.  The place dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was first listed as Nutehale.  Literally the place name means "nook of land where nut trees grow" from the Old English words "hnutu" + "halh."

Migration of the Nuddal family
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 Nuddal arrived in North America very early: Richard Nuttall and Thomas Nuttall, who came to Virginia in 1662; Robert Nuttall settled in Virginia in 1635; Edward, John, Joshua, Newton, Robert, Thomas and William Nuttall all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1860..
