a one-name family study of the surnames of 'Clitter' and 'Cleeter'


The Unknown


A one-name surname study differs from most ancestor- or descendant-based genealogical studies in that it also includes discovering everyone who has held the surname in question as well as those with possible spelling variations of the name. There have been pockets of Clitters in eight English shires, or counties, especially between the 1500s and 1700s. Is this sourced information correct? If so, were any of these people related, and who were the parents of the first George in Essex and where was he born?

In the United States, sources show several people with the Clitter surname outside of the known descendancy. Is this sourced information correct, and if so, were there any family relationships among any of these people, and when did they migrate from England?

Can sources be found for any of the Cleeter family reconstructions and for the generations gap between the earliest discovered Christopher and Robert Clitter, probably born in the late 1400s, and their descendant Cleeters?
