This interesting surname of English origin is a nickname for a bald man or one who kept his hair extremely close-cropped, deriving from the middle English "not" (old English pre 7th Century "knot") meaning "bald", plus "ings" a double patronymic. The surname dates back to the early 12th Century, (see below). Further recordings include; one Algar le Notte (1183), "The Pipe Rolls of Somerset", and Henry le Not (1210), "the Curia Regis Rolls of Staffordshire". Variations in the idiom of the spelling include Nottings, Noden, Naton, Naden, Newton, Nutting, Noddins, Nodding etc.. Ann, daughter of John Nodding, was christened at St. Mary, Aldermanry, London on July 23rd 1580, and Mary, daughter of Edward and Mary Noddings was christened on December 28th 1730 at St. Andrew, Enfield, London. One Mary Noddings married William Burgess at St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Westminster on January 31st 1753. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Roger Not, which was dated 1100, Old English Bynames, during the reign of King William 11, known as "Rufus", 1087 - 1100. 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.
