Keite Early Origins



The surname Keite 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]

Keite Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. 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 Keite family name include Keate, Keete, Keyte, Keite, Keat, Keet, Keats and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Keite surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
