PETTICREW Family HistoryEarly Victorian researchers concluded that this name was a vicious nickname which meant "a dwarf", it derives from the Olde French "petit cru" (little growth) and was quite clearly a term of affection for a son or perhaps a friend like "young man" or "old son" as examples. In fact with some six modern spellings Pettegree, Petegree, Petticrew, Petticrow, Pettigree and Pettigrew the name could hardly have achieved this level of popularity had the origin been uncomplimentary. Thomas Pettigrew was an early archeaologist and senior surgeon at Charing Cross hospital in 1835.
