KETT Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and has two possible sources. Firstly, the name may derive from the Olde English pre 7th Century "cyte", Middle English "kete", a kite, bird of prey belonging to the falcon family, and would have been a nickname given to a fierce or rapacious person. The creation of surnames from nicknames was a common practice in the Middle Ages, and many modern-day surnames derive from medieval nicknames referring to personal characteristics. Richard Kyte is noted in the 1243 Assize Court Rolls of Somerset.
