The Kidiministre name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in Kidderminster, a village in Worcestershire. The place-name was recorded as Chideminstre in the Domesday Book, [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Williams, Dr Ann. And G.H. Martin, Eds., Domesday Book A Complete Translation. London: Penguin, 1992. Print. (ISBN 0-141-00523-8)
which was compiled in 1086, and as Kedeleministere in 1154. The place-name is derived from the Old English personal name Cydela, and the Old English word mynster, which meant monastery. The place-name as a whole means "monastery of a man called Cydela." The surname means "one who came from Kidderminster." [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Kidiministre were among those contributors: Hugh Kiddermaster, who arrived in Virginia in 1628; Anthony Kittermaster, who was on record in Ontario in 1871; and Albert Kittermaster, also on record in Ontario in 1871..
