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 Nutterey family, who lived in Midlothian, Scotland. Today, Niddrie is a suburb of south east Edinburgh, Scotland and an electoral district near Melbourne, Australia.

Nutterey Early Origins



The surname Nutterey 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.

Nutterey 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 Niddry, Niddrie, Niddray, Niddrey, Nidderey, Nudre, Nudrey, Nudry, Nudrie, Nuddre, Nuddrey, Nuddry, Nudery, Nidry, Nidrie, Nidray, Nidrey, Nideray and many more.

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 Nutterey or a variant listed above: 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..
