Where did the English Deatherage family come from? What is the English Deatherage family crest and coat of arms? When did the Deatherage family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Deatherage family history?

Among the earliest people to bear the Deatherage name were the Deatherage family, who lived in the town of Ath in Belgium. There it would have been rendered D'Ath, or De Ath, meaning "from Ath." It was also occasionally an occupational name for a gatherer or seller of kindling. In this case, the name is derived from the Old English word "dethe," which in turn is derived from the Old English word "dyth," which means "fuel" or "tinder." Occupational names frequently were derived from the principal object associated with the activity of the original bearer, such as tools or products. These types of occupational surnames are called metonymic surnames.
