Gates Genealogy & History

Gates is an English surname, taken from a town's gates. Originally, the word was singular, applying to each side of the structure, but since gates always have two sides, it became plural. The singular sense survives today, applying typically to house gates that have only one swinging entrance instead of two halves. Gates family history starts with Ailricus de la Gata, recorded in the Pipe Rolls of Devonshire in 1169. Some prominent members of Gates genealogy include philanthropist and computer entrepreneur Bill Gates, American Revolutionary War General Horatio Gates, and former Defense Secretary and CIA Director Robert Gates.
