Before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Sound was what guided spelling in the Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Phetteplace family name include Fettiplace, Fetiplace, Feteplace, Ffetiplace, Phetiplace, Phetteplace and many more.

First found in Oxfordshire where one of the earliest records was of Adam Feteplace, Mayor of Oxford in 1245. A Walter Feteplece was also recorded around the same time in that area. Sir Phillip Fettiplace (1220-1302), purchased the manor of North Denchworth from Ralph de Cameys in 1263. The name was most numerous in Swinbrook, where the surname is descended from the tenant of the lands of Swinbrook, held by Geoffrey who was recorded in the Domesday Book census of 1086. The Church of England parish church of Saint Mary in Swinbrook dates from about 1200 and is noted for its 17th century Fettiplace monuments. There is a distinct branch of the family found in Nottinghamshire from very early times. Another branch of the family was found at Besselsliegh in Berkshire. " It takes its name from the ancient family of Bessels, an heiress of which conveyed the estate by marriage to the Fettyplaces; and Sir Edmund Fettyplace sold it, about 1620, to Wm. Lenthall, master of the rolls, and speaker of the house of commons in the Long parliament." [1]

To escape the political and religious chaos of this era, thousands of English families began to migrate to the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. The passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe; however, those who made the voyage safely were encountered opportunities that were not available to them in their homeland. Many of the families that reached the New World at this time went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations of the United States and Canada. Research into various historical records has revealed some of first members of the Phetteplace family to immigrate North America: Gyles Fettyplace, who arrived in Virginia in 1663; and Thomas Fettplace who arrived in Maryland in 1653.
