The Outhwaite family name is linked to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. Their name comes from the Old English personal name Untric, which meant dawn or powerful. Thus, the bearers of the Outhwaite surname were originally known as the son of Untric.

Outhwaite Early Origins



The surname Outhwaite was first found in Lancashire where they held a family seat at Houthwaite in the parish of Kirkby-Ireleth, Furness, Northern Lancashire. Anciently, the name was more commonly spelt Huthwaite. William of Husthayt was recorded in 1275 in Yorkshire.

Outhwaite Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Outhwaite include Outhwaite, Owthwaite, Huthwaite, Houthwaite, Hustwayte, Hustwitt, Outhwayte, Owthwait, Outhwait, Owthwate, Outhwate, Uthwatt, Uthwaite, Uthwayte and many more.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Outhwaite were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records:
