The Whitter One-Name study started in 2019. Like many one-name studies, it grew out of an attempt to trace my own ancestry. I’m currently living in Germany and I wanted to know more about my (paternal) english heritage.
This study actually started, before I even knew what a one-name study was. I was seeking for the origin of my 8th great grandfather Thomas Witter without any success and then began to collect everything I could find about the Whitter family in Lancashire.
From there onwards developed the desire to research the surname completly and to collect as much information as possible.
