The Nuttall name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in the settlement of Nuthall in Nottinghamshire, or in the place named Nuttall in the county of Lancashire. The surname Nuttall 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 Nuttall family


The surname Nuttall 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.

Migration of the Nuttall family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Nuttall were among those contributors:
