Origins Available: German, Scottish


The descendants of the clans of the ancient Scottish tribe known as the Picts were the first to use the name Sutterfield. It was 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



In those unstable times, many had no choice but to leave their beloved homelands. Sickness and poverty hounded travelers to North America, but those who made it were welcomed with land and opportunity. These settlers gave the young nations of Canada and the United States a strong backbone as they stood up for their beliefs as United Empire Loyalists and in the American War of Independence. In this century, the ancestors of these brave Scots have begun to recover their illustrious heritage through Clan societies and other heritage organizations. Early passenger and immigration lists reveal many Scottish settlers bearing the name Sutterfield: 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..
