History

the text in this section is copied from an article in Wikipedia

The villages are mentioned in the Domesday book as Hotun in the Bulford hundred. The lands were divided between Cnut, son of Karli, Thorkil and Thorbrand son of Kalri. After the Norman invasion, the lands were split between the King and Berengar of Tosny. The land at Low Hutton owned by the King, has been named Hutton Colswayn, whilst the land near Hutton Hill has been known as Hutton Mynchon. The land at High Hutton has been known as Hutton Bardolf. All these suffixes indicate the names of the landowners of those times. The Colswayn family may have been gifted the land by the Crown for duties performed guarding York Castle. The titles passed on to the Bolton family. The other lands came into the possession of the Gower family, some of whom held the office of High Sheriff of York, such as Sir Thomas Gower. Memorials to members of this family can seen in the Church.[1]

The toponym derives from the Old English hōh tūn, meaning settlement on or by the hill spur.[2] The suffix is Latin indicating the combination of the two villages into the one parish.[3]

Excavations in the 1950s revealed evidence of 12th- or 13th-century fortified buildings at the south end of the village of Low Hutton near the river. Huttons Ambo lends its name to a specific type of Medieval pottery produced here in the 13th Century consisting of large, unglazed storage jars


There used to be a station in the village that was a stop on the York to Scarborough Line run by York and North Midland Railway. Opened in 1845, it closed in 1966.
