The English surname Hudson, also found in Ireland and Scotland, is of patronymic origin, deriving from the medieval personal name Hudde . This surname is particularly common in Yorkshire in the north of England. In Scotland the earliest record of Hudson is probably that of James Hudson, a charter witness recorded in the register of Kelso Abbey in 1466. Variants of the Scottish name include "Hudsone" in 1567, whilst "Hutson" is recorded there in 1637. Diminutives of Hudson include Huddy and Huddle, found in Devonshire and Cornwall. Amongst the many famous nameholders was Henry Hudson, 1580 - 1611, who is credited with discovering the 'North West Passage' and Hudson's Bay in Canada.
