Cantu Genealogy & History

Cantu is a Spanish and Portuguese surname, possibly from the Latin canto, meaning singer or song depending on the form, or maybe cantus, meaning the rim of a wheel. Lastly, it could be from an archaic Latin word, also spelled canto, referring to an area with stony or clay-bearing ground, likely the site of a quarry, and possibly used for people working there. Cantu family history begins with Augustino Canto, who was christened at Nuestra Senora de Antigua in 1597. Cantu genealogy includes several interesting people, such as widely-traveled infielder Jorge Cantu, Cardinals offensive guard Roland Cantu, and Baja California Governor Esteban Cantu.
