HUTCHINGS Family History

This interesting surname, with variant spellings Hutchins, Huchings and Hutchinges, derives from the medieval given name "Huchin", a diminutive of the Old French personal name "Hu(gh)e", introduced into Britain by the Normans after the Conquest of 1066. This is in origin a short form of any of the various Germanic compound names with the first element "hug", meaning "heart, mind, spirit". The suffix "s" denotes "son of". The surname dates back to the early 14th Century (see below), and other early recordings include: Richard Huchins in the 1237 Subsidy Rolls of Worcestershire; Edith Huchenes in the 1332 Subsidy Rolls of Staffordshire; and John Huchouns in the 1337 Court Rolls of the Borough of Colchester.
