This most interesting and unusual name may derive from two possible origins. Firstly, it may be a variant of "Hudd", itself coming from the popular medieval given name "Hudde", from either the pre-existing old English personal name "Huda" or a pet form of Hugh. Hudde may have been in use at the end of the Norman Conquest. Some sources believe that it is a pet form of Richard. Secondly, the name may be Ashkenazic from either "hut(h)", hat, hence; a German metonymic occupational name for a maker of hats or the middle High German word "huote", an occupational name for a herdsman. The name may also be of French origin as French Huguenots Henry and Marie Hut had a son Louis christened on May 4th 1704 at Crispin Street, Spitalfields London. One Jane Hutt married Crystofar Hylkin on August 4th 1540 at St. Michael, Bassishaw, London. John Hutt (1746 - 1794), was a captain in the navy, distinguished as a flag captain and a monument in his memory is in Westminster Abbey. Sir William Hutt (1801 - 1882) was a paymaster-general and vice-president of the board of trade and was a commissioner for the foundation of South Australia. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Joyce Hutt, (christened), which was dated April 12th 1540 at St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, London, during the reign of King Henry V11, "Bluff King Hal", 1509 - 1547. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.
