Early Origins of the Totty family
The surname Totty was first found in Staffordshire where they held a family seat, some say, before the Norman Conquest of England in 1066 A.D.

Included as his witnesses to the grant was Bishop Totta, the second most senior ecclesiastic in his kingdom. Evidence of the age of this surname is endorsed by the absolute simplicity of the Coat of Arms of the family.
