Background: The history of the most ancient Anglo-Saxon surname of Whitaker reaches far into the chronicles of the Saxon race. The Saxon Chronicle, compiled by monks in the 10th century, now resides in the British Museum.

History researchers have examined reproductions of such ancient manuscripts as the Domesday Book (1086) , the Ragman Rolls (1291-1296), the Curia Regis Rolls, The Pipe Rolls, the Hearth Rolls, parish registers, baptismals, tax records and other ancient documents. They found the first record of the name Whitaker in Warwickshire where they had been seated at Wheatacre from ancient times before and after the Norman Conquest in 1066.

Variations: Whitaker, Whittaker, Whitteker, Whitacre, Whitacar, Whitacher, Wheatacre, Whitiker, Whiteker, Whiteaker, Whitcher, Whitakert, Withacre, Wythacre, Witacre, Witacur, Wyteacre, Wetaker, Witteacres, Whittacre, Witaker, Wittaker, Whiteacre, Weiteaker, Waiteaker, Whittiker

My grandmother was a Whitaker, my mother a Sutton. I have been able to trace our family, with the help of cousins, back as far as 1508 York England. They were quite the scholarly bunch having served as politicians and judges once they arrived in the states in the 18thc and still doing so to this day (no one famous, mind you). My family started out as staunch Quakers and moved to Pennsylvania for religious freedom, etc. Before the American Revolution they got disgrunted with the Society of Friends and left for either the Baptist or Mormom faiths.
