Gartt Early Origins



The surname Gartt was first found in Surrey 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 12th century when they held estates in that shire and held a family seat at Morden.

Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Gartts to arrive in North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
