Keates Early Origins



The surname Keates was first found in Norfolk, where the name is generally thought to have been derived from a baptismal name as "the son of Kett." And whether that name represents a nickname of "Catherine" or Christopher," there is much confusion. Regardless of how the name was derived, the first record of the name was William Kett who was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of Norfolk in 1273. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
