An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The story of the MacEtteryke family stretches back through time to the Viking settlers who populated the rugged shores of Scotland in the Medieval era. The name MacEtteryke was derived from the Old Norse personal name Sigtryggr, which literally means true victory. The Gaelic form adopted for the surname is Mac Shitrig.

MacEtteryke Early Origins



The surname MacEtteryke was first found in Galloway (Gaelic: Gall-ghaidhealaibh), an area of southwestern Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Dumfries and Galloway, that formerly consisted of the counties of Wigtown (West Galloway) and Kirkcudbright (East Galloway), where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

MacEtteryke Spelling Variations



Spelling variations are extremely common among Scottish names dating from this era because the arts of spelling and translation were not yet standardized.

In different records, MacEtteryke has been spelled MacKettrick, Kettrick, Kitterick, MacKitterick, MacEtterick, McKettrick, McKetrick, Ketterick and many more.

The Great Migration



Those who made the voyage were greeted with ample opportunity to acquire land and a political climate far away from the oppressive monarchy of the old country. They settled along the east coast of what would become Canada and the United States. In the American War of Independence, those who remained loyal to England traveled north to Canada as United Empire Loyalists. In this century, many Scots living in North America have begun to recover their rich heritage through festivals, highland games, and Clan societies. An examination of passenger and immigration lists has shown early immigrants bearing the name MacEtteryke: Dr. John Kittredge (b. 1620), who arrived in America in 1660; G. B. Kitteredge, who arrived in San Francisco in 1852; F. M. Kitterage arrived in San Francisco in 1857.
