Waters Genealogy & History

Waters is an English and Scottish name with a surprising derivation. Although it certainly could mean someone who lived near a distinctive lake or river, and there are villages named Water, the more likely derivation may be from the Old German name "Waldhar," composed of "wald", meaning rule, and "heri", meaning army, and often pronounced Wauter in medieval England. Thus Waters genealogy is complicated by the many variations found: Wadders, Waders, Waiders, Waitrs, Wharters, Wauters, and the locational Attwaters. Waters family history dates to feudal times when they held a family seat in Shropshire, and the early immigration in the 1610s to Virginia in America.
