Watters Family History


The Watters ancient family history was found in the irishsurnames.com archives. Meaning 'the son of Walter', Watters is a baptismal name introduced to England by the Normans. Variants include Walters, Walter, Walther, Walterson, Fitzwalter, McWalter, McWatters, Waters, Watterson and Waterson. This name is of Anglo-Norman descent spreading to Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts in the above countries. Examples of such are a Johannes Wauterson, who was recorded in the 'Poll Tax', of the West Riding of Yorkshire, in the year 1379. A Charles Walter, County Monmouth, was recorded in the University of Oxford, in the year 1598. Fitzwalter is the name of an English family of Norman origin descended from Godfrey, Count of Brionne. In Ireland Watters can be of immigrant origin, especially in Ulster Province but is also a variant of several native names, including Hiskey, Whoriskey and Toorish. In County Cork Waters and Watters are forms of the name 'de Auteurs', on record since 1190.The Watters family crest (or coat of arms) came into existence many centuries ago. The process of creating these coats of arms began as early as the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this, including Ireland. The new more formalized art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own family crest, coat of arms, including Watters descendants.
