Families covered: Nuthall of Cattenhall, Nuttall of Dublin, Nuttall of Tittour, Nuthall (Nuttall) of Tottington

This family's name appears to have varied between Nuthall, Nutthall & Nuttal but then settled on Nuttall. BLGI1912 reports that it was anciently "Notogh". We do not know where the family originated but Commoners suggests that it was early on at Nuthhall Hall near Holcombe, presumed to be the Holcome near Manchester in Lancashire rather than the one in Devon. The 3 families shown on this page share a coat of arms though that of the Nuthalls of Cattenal are quartered with the arms of Griffin & Horton.
