The origins of the Chittick surname date back to the time of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It comes from an early member of the family who was a person who had a youthful appearance. The surname Chittick is a diminutive of the word chit, which means small child. The diminutive suffix -ock is used with this name in a similar manner to its application in the word bullock, which means young bull.

Chittick Early Origins



The surname Chittick was first found in Suffolk where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Chitticks to arrive in North America:
