Suitor History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



An ancient Scottish people known as the Picts were the forefathers of the Suitor family. Suitor 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.

Early Origins of the Suitor family


The surname Suitor was first found in Angus (Gaelic: Aonghas), part of the Tayside region of northeastern Scotland, and present day Council Area of Angus, formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, where Colin, son of Angus Souter, held lands in 1264.
