This is a patronymic i.e. "the son of Huchun", a diminutive form of the personal name Hugh (from the Old German "hug" meaning "heart" or "soul"). St. Hugh of Lincoln (1140 - 1200) founded the first Carthusian Monastery in England - the popularity of the name was, in part, due to him. One, Huchun Aleyn is recorded in the 1277 "Court Rolls of the Manor of Wakefield", Yorkshire. The name was adopted as a surname by the end of the 13th Century - "Gilbert Huchun, the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex" (1296). The patronymic appears in the late 14th Century especially in Northern England and in Scotland. One, Anthony Hutchins was an early immigrant to the New World. leaving London in the "Expedition" in November 1635, bound for the Barbados. On November 8th 1570, Agnes Hutchinson married Thomas Cordell, at St. Botolph Bishopsgate. Hanna, daughter of John Hutchinson was christened on November 8th 1573 at St. Vedast, Foster Lane and St. Michael le Querne, London. One of the earliest settlers in the New World was John Hutchinson, who departed from the port of London, aboard the "Bonaventure", bound for Virginia, in January 1634. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Isota Huchonson, which was dated 1379, in the Poll Tax Returns Records of Yorkshire, during the reign of King Edward 1, known as "The Hammer of the Scots", 1272 - 1307. 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.
