Whittaker Genealogy & History

Whittaker stems from pre-seventh-century Old English hwit, meaning white, with feld, meaning field. It also descends from hwaete, meaning wheat, coupled with aecer, developed farm land. Thus this is a locational name meaning someone who lived or worked the (wheat) fields. Some different spellings of the name include Whitacre, Whitticase, and Widaker. Whittaker family history says the first known recording of the name is Richard de Wetacra in the Pipe Rolls of Norfolk, England, in 1177. Some of the members of Whittaker genealogy include mountaineer and first disabled Mount Everest climber Tom Whittaker; vegetation ecologist Robert Harding Whittaker; and businessman and $315 million lottery winner Jack Whittaker.
