The Anglo-Saxons of Britain first developed the name Kitcheman. It was a name given to someone who was a person who worked in a kitchen as a cook or server. Occupational names that were derived from the common trades of the medieval era transcended European cultural and linguistic boundaries. Occupational names have remained fairly common in the modern period. This is attested to by the continuing appearance of occupational suffixes at the end of many English surnames. Some of these suffixes include: herd, monger, maker, hewer, smith, and wright.

Kitcheman Early Origins

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Among the first immigrants of the name Kitcheman, or a variant listed above to cross the Atlantic and come to North America were: William Kitchinman who settled in Virginia in 1738 and James Kitchenman who sailed to Pennsylvania in 1848.
