The Anglo-Saxon name Nuthall comes from when the family resided in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nuthall belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Nuthall Early Origins



The surname Nuthall 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.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Nuthall has been recorded under many different variations, including Nuttall, Nutthall, Nutshall and others.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Nuthall or a variant listed above:
