Knight Genealogy & History

Knight genealogy is British, coming from the Old English "cniht" and the Middle English "knyghte," which was originally a name for a serving boy. Before the Norman Conquest in 1066, a knight was a common soldier, but under the later feudal system, knight was a title for a mounted soldier attached to a baron. By the sixteenth century, it had taken on its current meaning as an essentially social distinction. Knight family history can extend back to medieval soldiers or nobility; to someone who was a servant in a knight's household; or even to someone who gained notoriety playing a knight in stage dramas.
