Early Origins of the Canter family


The surname Canter was first found in Pomerania, where the family contributed greatly to the development of an emerging nation and would later play a large role in the political conflicts of the area. The family branched into many houses, many of which acquired estates and manors throughout the surrounding regions, where they played significant roles in the social and political affairs. Individual bearers of the name first mentioned in ancient chronicles include Arnold Cantor of Rostock in 1298, and Andreas Kanther of Stuttgart in 1498. The literal meaning of the name is the ecclesiastic position of cantor.
