Whitman Genealogy & History

Whitman stems from the pre-seventh-century Old English word hwit (light complexion or fair skinned) combined with man (servant, assistant or friend of). Hwit also indicated someone of white hair, so it probably indicates an old or older man or friend. Several other spellings are Wittman, Whyteman, and Whiteman. Whitman family history has the ancestral home in Peebles-shire, England since 1086. The first known recording of the name is William Witman in the Pipe Rolls of Kent in 1230. Noteworthy Whitman genealogy members are horticulturist William F. Whitman, Jr.; poet, essayist, transcendentalist and spiritualist Sarah Helen Power Whitman; and eBay president and CEO Meg Whitman.
