The Anglo-Saxon name Kydiminstre comes from when the family resided 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



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Kydiminstre or a variant listed above: 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..
