The Yeatts name comes from the old English "geat," and was probably first used as a name for a keeper of a gate.

Yeatts Early Origins



The surname Yeatts was first found in Gloucestershire, England where they were first on record in 1198. The name spread throughout England and Scotland, and possibly arrived in Ireland in the wake of the Norman invasion of 1172. Bearers of this name definitely came from Britain to Ireland with Cromwell's Adventurers for Land in the 17th century.
