LATTER Family HistoryThis is a very old English surname. It is occupational and derives from the pre 7th century word "laett" and describes a lath maker, a very important skill at a time when almost all internal building work was based around the use of lath and plaster. In fact it has been estimated that a small cottage of four rooms could contain two miles of lath, whilst an early manor house might require over fifty miles! As the majority of medieval houses built without any form of foundation or rot preservation, only had a life of thirty to forty years, it can be seen that the occupation of "latter" was that of a major industry.
