Whitter / Witter

Surname, DNA & Family History

Welcome..

.. to the Homepage of the Whitter One-Name Study.
The Whitter One-Name Study began in 2019. The aim of this study is to find out as much as possible about the history of the name Whitter/Witter and to investigate its possible origins. Like many One-Name Studies, it all started with the desire to find out more about my ancestors.

The focus of this study is on England and in particular on the counties of Cheshire and Lancashire. However, in the future I will also try to research the history of the Whitters in other regions as well (especially in Cornwall and Devon).

To anyone interested, I recommend to read the blog entries first and then look at the other results (1841 Census for example).
