Origins Available: English, German, Scottish


Kettner is a name of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was a name given to a person who had acquired the nickname of the kite, which was originally derived from the Old English word cyta, which means wild and insatiable. In this case the original bearer of the surname earned this name due to their wild, and high-spirited nature.

Kettner Early Origins



The surname Kettner was first found in Gloucestershire where they were of the early west country landed gentry. Although, there is also early record of them in the East, where a Richard Kete was listed in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk in 1166.

The Great Migration



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Kettner family emigrate to North America:
