An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright © 2000 - 2016
The surname Chitty was first found in Northampton
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1273 when Nicholas Kitte held estates in that shire.
Spelling variations of this family name include: Chitty, Chittie, Chyttie, Chytty, Kitty, Kittie, Chitterling, Kitterling, Chitterly, Kitterly, Chytterly, Chitter and many more.
