Kittermaster History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The origins of the Kittermaster name lie with England's ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. It comes from when the family 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]
