Whitehead Genealogy & History

Whitehead, originally an English medieval nickname, described someone with white hair, suggesting its rareness. Derived from Old English "hwit", meaning white, and "heafod", meaning head, Whitehead could alternatively refer to makers of white hoods for monasteries or people living on a chalky promontory. In English Whitehead family history, there was a feudal manor in Lancashire with the motto "Dum spiro spero", meaning "While I have breath, I have hope." The crest and coat of arms have hunting-horns, symbolizing noble pursuits. American Whitehead genealogy dates from the 1630s in Connecticut and New York, with Joseph Whitehead, co-founder of the Coca-Cola bottling company, a noted name-holder.
