The people known in ancient Scotland as the Picts were the forefathers of the Suiters family. It is a name for a cobbler. The name is derived from the Old English word soutere, which in turn comes from the Old Norse word sutare, which means shoemaker or cobbler.

The Great Migration



Thousands of Scots left their home country to travel to Ireland or Australia, or to cross the Atlantic for the North American colonies. The difficult crossing was an enormous hurdle, but those who survived found freedom and opportunity in ample measure. Some Scots even fought for their freedom in the American War of Independence. This century, their ancestors have become aware of the illustrious history of the Scots in North America and at home through Clan societies and other organizations. Passenger and immigration lists show many early and influential immigrants bearing the name Suiters: Frederick Souter who arrived in Philadelphia in 1753; Nicholas Sowter settled in Philadelphia in 1733; Martin Suter settled in Carolina in 1771 with his three children..
