The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Nuterey family, who lived in Midlothian, Scotland. Today, Niddrie is a suburb of south east Edinburgh, Scotland and an electoral district near Melbourne, Australia.

Early Origins of the Nuterey family


The surname Nuterey was first found in Midlothian where they held a family seat in the lands of Niddry in the parish of Libberton. Alexander of Niddrie (Nodref) was the first on record, he is believed to be the son of the first settler who moved north in the train of the Earl of Huntingdon, later to be David, King of Scotland, and these many Normans were granted lands by the King. Niddry Castle is a fourteenth-century tower house near Winchburgh, West Lothian, Scotland. Mary, Queen of Scots stayed there on the 2nd of May in 1568, after her escape from captivity in Loch Leven Castle.

Nuterey Spelling Variations


Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Niddry, Niddrie, Niddray, Niddrey, Nidderey, Nudre, Nudrey, Nudry, Nudrie, Nuddre, Nuddrey, Nuddry, Nudery, Nidry, Nidrie, Nidray, Nidrey, Nideray and many more.

Migration of the Nuterey family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Nuterey or a variant listed above were: John Nuddrey who landed in North America in 1700. John Niddrie (b. 1863 in the Scottish Highlands), came twice to Canada, first in 1876 and again in 1885, where John was a teacher and missionary, ordained in 1915..
