Poteet Surname History



The long and noble heritage behind the name of Poteet first began in medieval France. Originally, the French people were known only by a single name. The process by which hereditary surnames were adopted in France is extremely interesting. Surnames evolved during the Middle Ages when people began to assume an extra name to avoid confusion and to further identify themselves. Many people, such as the Poteet family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Poteet was an occupational name for a maker of clay and metal drinking and storage vessels deriving its origin from the Latin word "potus," meaning "to drink."

Early Origins of the Poteet family


The surname Poteet was first found in Berry, a former province until 1790 when it became a region in central France where the family has been located since early times.
