HUGGETT Family History

This most interesting surname is of Old French or Anglo-Saxon origin. Firstly, it may be a variant of "Huggate", a locational name from a place so called in Yorkshire, which was recorded as "Hughete" in the Domesday Book of 1086. The placename is composed of the Olde English "huc", a point of land, and "geat", a pass. Secondly, and more likely, the surname is a variant of "Hewet", composed of "Hug", a diminutive of "Hugh", and the diminutive suffix "-et"; hence "little Hug, Hugh". Hugh itself derives from the Old French personal name "Hu(gh)e", introduced to Britain by the Normans, and derived from any of the various Germanic compound names with the first element "hug", heart, mind, spirit.
