The ancestors of the name Nuthalls date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nuthalls belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Nuthallss to arrive on North American shores: 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..
