The Pittman Clan

Clan History...

The surname Pittman is of English origin. The prevalence of the surname in Ireland is not very common with only twenty records appearing in the 1911 Census of Ireland. Recorded in the spellings of Pitman, Pittman, Pettman and Putnam. It is topographical for someone who lived by a pit or a hollow in the ground, perhaps a quarry, or in some cases was occupational for one who worked at such a place. The derivation is from the Olde English pre 7th century word "pytt", pit, hole, cavity, which also appears, though rarely, in some English placenames, such as "Pett" in Kent, meaning "(place by) the pit or hollow", and "Woolpit" in Suffolk and in Surrey which have the picturesque meaning of "the pit for trapping wolves". Initially topographical surnames were among the earliest created, In the this case the surname became occupational and topographical, in that it gradually described both where a person lived and in this case the work they carried out.
