Cates Genealogy & History

Cates is a Dutch and English name with several possible origins. It could be a locational name given to people who lived in the city named Catesby in modern Northamptonshire. Alternately, it might be derived from the Old Norse personal name Kati. Finally, in some cases it could be an Americanized version of the German name Goetz. Cates family history in America begins with Luke Cates, who came to Virginia in 1717. Cates genealogy includes actress Phoebe Cates, award-winning television producer and film director Gilbert Cates (who is also the uncle of Phoebe Cates), and 20th-century Marine Corps Commandant General Clifton B. Cates.
