CUTLER Family History

Recorded in various spellings including Cutler, and the French Cuttelar, this is a famous and noble surname of Old French origins. It is occupational and derives from the word "coutelier", and as such was introduced into England by the Norman Invaders in the conquest of 1066. The precise meaning is a maker of swords and knives, and the early cutlers with the armourers, accompanied the military forces wherever they went. They were also expected to be proficient in the use of the sword and to act as soldiers in their own right, when the battle commenced.

Trying to locate our missing granddad Jack (or ? John) Cutler, who probably came from Cork or Dublin and was in London, England, in 1930-31. He was probably born 1895-1910.
