WOLTERING Family History

Recorded in over forty spelling forms including Walter, Walters and Water (England), Gaultier, Galtie and Gauthier (France), Walter, Walther and Waldherr, Waltering and Woltering, (Germany), Gwalter and Gwilt (Wales), this is a surname of early Germanic origins. The derivation is from the pre 7th century personal name "Waldhar", a compound of the elements "wald", meaning to rule, and "hari" - an army. The name was introduced into France during the reign of the Emperor Charlemagne in the 9th century, and into England during the reign of King Edward the Confessor (1042 - 1066).
