The history of the name Herytitch goes back those Anglo-Saxon tribes that once ruled over Britain. Such a name was given to a person who held or occupied land inherited by an ancestor instead of acquiring it by means of the Feudal System. The surname Herytitch 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.

Herytitch Early Origins

Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Herytitch family name include Herytage, Heritage, Eritage, Erytage and others.
