PITT Family History

This famous surname, one of the most important in British history, is recorded in several spellings including Pitt, Pitts, Pett, Petts, and Pott. It is topographical, and derives from the pre 7th century Olde English word "pytt" meaning a pit or hollow, and hence was given to a person who lived or worked by such a place. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, both natural and man-made features in the landscape providing easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages. In this case the name may also be locational from one of the places named Pitt or Pett in the counties of Hampshire and Sussex...
