Origins Available: English, Scottish


The Anglo-Saxon name Liting comes from when the family resided in the region of Litton located throughout various counties in England. Liting is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Early Origins of the Liting family


The surname Liting was first found in Derbyshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Migration of the Liting family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect.
