HUTCHINSON Family HistoryRecorded in several forms including Hutchinson, Hutcheson, Hutchieson and Hutchison, this is an Anglo-Scottish surname. It is a patronymic and diminutive form of the original personal name Hugh, itself Norman-French, but of pre 7th century Old German origins. It derives from the word "hug" meaning "heart or soul", with the additives "kin" meaning close relative, and "son of". St. Hugh of Lincoln (1140 - 1200) founded the first Carthusian Monastery in England, and the popularity of the name was at least in part, due to him. Amongst the many early recordings are those of John Hucheson of Sheffield, Yorkshire, in 1440, and in Scotland James Huchonsone, who held lands in Glasgow in 1454...
