This Surname was created from the Upper German personal name
Dietrich, which is in turn derived from the elements "Diet," meaning "nation or people," and "her," meaning "army."
Early Origins of the Deeter family
The surname Deeter was first found in Pomerania, where this family name became a prominent contributor to the development of the district from ancient times. Always prominent in social affairs, the name became an integral part of that turbulent region as it emerged to form alliances with other families within the Feudal
System and the nation. The five sons Peter Deterde (also spelt Dithers) were granted the feudal
property of Grapow by the Duke Bolislav in 1514.
