    Name Meaning

    English:variant of Hudson .variant of Hotston, perhaps a habitational name from a lost place in Harting (Sussex), from an Old English personal name Hod (genitive Hoddes) + Old English tūn ‘farmstead, estate’. It may survive in the name Hudsons Copse in that parish, in which case it could be a source of the surnames Hotson, Hodson, Hudson, and Hutson in Sussex.
