Herytige is a name whose history dates far back into the mists of early British times to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes. It is a name for a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Herytige is derived from the Old English word heritage, which in turn comes from the Old French words eritage and heritage. These words are derived from the Late Latin word heritagium, which comes from the word heres, which means heir.

Herytige Early Origins



The surname Herytige was first found in Oxfordshire, where they held a family seat from very early times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Herytige or a variant listed above: Roger Eritage, who sailed to Barbados in 1635; Richard Heritage to New Jersey in 1664; W. Heritage to San Francisco, Cal. in 1850 and Mary Houlihan Heritage to Nova Scotia in 1838..
