The Nuthereton surname is derived from the Old English "neothera," meaning "lower," and "tun," meaning "enclosure," or "settlement." It is a habitational name derived from any of several places so named, such as one in Northumberland, and one in Worcestershire.

Nuthereton Early Origins



The surname Nuthereton was first found in Worcestershire, at Netherton, a hamlet that dates back to Anglo-Saxon times in the year 780 when it was first listed as Neotheretun. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

One of the first records of the name was found here in 1275 when Petronilla de la Netherton was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire. [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

The township of Netherton in Northumberland is of particular significance to the family. "This place was the residence, at an early period, of a family of the same name; and among the most considerable families that have subsequently owned it, have been those of Swinburne, Ogle, and Heron. Hugo de Hexham held three messuages, 120 acres of land, and four meadows, here." [4]CITATION[CLOSE]

Nuthereton Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Netherton, Nuthereton and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad. Although the conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and some travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute, once in the colonies, many of the families prospered and made valuable contributions to the cultures of what would become the United States and Canada. Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Nuthereton or a variant listed above: John Netherton, who arrived in Maryland in 1650; as well as Richard Netherton, who arrived there in 1666.

Motto

Motto



The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Decrevi
Motto Translation: I have resolved.
