This page has been accessed 777 times.

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about the surname Huddleston and its variants. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect. Please contact the project leader, add categories to your profiles, add your questions to the bulletin board, add details of your name research, etc.

Get with me as I have a what I am calling the complete Huddleston Family tree beginning in 900AD to present and I am still adding family lines to it as information comes in. I am looking for anyone that has family history information on the Huddleston's and that they are willing to share. Thanks

Thanks for creating this page! Whilst working on the pre-1500s Huddleston I set up a freespace page to track the different sources and versions of lineage. It was too bulky to put here. I have some merges and cleanup still going on described on that page.

Feel free to add to it or correct it but please, only primary or solid secondary sources, nothing randomly found on the internet. I know there are some Inquisition Post Mortems and other documents that researchers have referenced that I could not find so any good contributions are welcome!

Hi Alan,

I have an interest in the Huddleston Family as all my Y-DNA testing shows me closely related to many Huddlestons who seem never to have been in any reasonable geographic proximity to my Linthicums in Early American and Colonial History. I have quite a bit of information compiled on a Valentine Huddleston which I would be happy to send to you if you want to take the time to format it to fit on this Wiki Tree which drives me crazy trying to work with it.

What do you know about the Huddleston DNA study; did it go belly Up?

Look forward to hearing from you.

Terry Linthicum
