The aim of this study is to work together to establish and compile an accurate family tree of the Utting Family by using the best possible sources available. Currently, there are many unconnected Uttings and Utting documentation available for viewing on FamilySearch. We can help in identifying correct and incorrect information, reliable sources, and beginning to connect the family together.
How You Can Help
- Work with other Utting profile managers to create the best and most accurate Utting family tree possible.
- Add the category for the Utting Name Study to profiles using locations to better identify and organise branches of the Utting tree. There are instructions on how to do this here.
- Search for sources to add to Utting family profiles.
- Check for duplicates, and request merges if needed.
- Scrounge through resources to find an accurate account of the Utting surname origin. Wikipedia says Yiddish, physical documentation says Scottish or English.
Where did your Utting branch live?
The earliest recorded Utting settlers of New Zealand arrived aboard the ship "Bombay" in 1863. My great-grandfather, Charlie Utting, arrived in New Zealand from Norfolk, England, at some point between 1891 and 1908 (he is recorded in the family census in 1891, and he married his first wife in Wellington, New Zealand, in 1908).
Another branch of the family landed in New Zealand at some point also; a descendant of that branch, about a year older than me, lives nearby and goes to a neighbouring high school.
Utting people lived in Wallhausen, Württemberg, Germany from 1795 and on. A group from this region emigrated to the United States in the 1850's, settling in Ohio, Illinois and likely Schenectady, New York.
