SUTTER Family History

Recorded in many forsm as shown below, this is an English surname. It can be either occupational, and a name for a shoemaker, or locational from a place called Sutterfield or similar. The derivation is from the pre 7th century Old English word "sutere", and the Latin "sutor" meaning a shoemaker. Occupational surnames were amongst the earliest to be created but did not usually become heriditary until a son followed a father into the same line ofd business. There is no such place recorded as Sutterfield, so either this is a 'lost' village name, or it is a corruption of something else.

I always thought the origin of the surname "Sutter" is from Southern Germany.
