Whitaker Genealogy & History

Whitaker is an old English name describing someone who lived in places called Whitaker. Derived from Old English "hwit", meaning white, and "acer", meaning fields, it described a white field, and villages of this name were located in Kent, Lancashire, and Warwickshire. Whitaker family history dates to feudal times in Warwickshire where the Whitakers held a family seat at Wheatacre. The Whitaker motto, "spes et fides", means "hope and faith"; the lozenges on the coat of arms symbolize honesty, constancy, and noble birth. American Whitaker genealogy includes Alexander Whitaker, the Jamestown minister who married John Rolfe and Pocahontas in 1614.
