About The Cater/Kendall Families
Please sign in to see more.
My name is Marilyn Barton (nee Cater) and I live in Newcastle upon Tyne, England.  This site is  dedicated to all my ancestors and contains details of the Cater, Davies and Hollingsworth  families(paternal side) and the Kendall, Chambers and Nicholson families (maternal side).

Locations in my family history include, Herefordshire, Kent, Nottingham, Northumberland, Co.  Durham, Peebleshire and Dumfries.

CATER  Occupational name - 'buyer of' (Norman cf modern French 'acheter') so 'caterer, purveyor  for a household'

KENDALL  Locality name - derived from the town of Kendal in the Lake District and was so called  from the River Ken, on which it is situated, and dale; the dale on the River Ken.

VERRIER  Occupational name - maker of glass objects.  Derived from the Latin 'vitrum' meaning  glass. First used in England around Norman-French conquest of 1066.

NICHOLSON   Patronymic, son of Nicol (people's victory).  Of Norse descent perhaps from  personal name Olsen, ´Nic´ in Gaelic signifying ´daughter of´.  Could also be a corruption of  Nicolassen. The Norse raided the coasts of Scotland, the north of England and the northern  coast of France, whence came their Norman descendants. Nicolson clan bears a gold shield  charged with red falcons.

HOLLINGSWORTH  Locality name.   One from Hollingworth (holly enclosure)

CHAMBERS  Occupational name - denoted an official in charge of the private chambers of his  master.  French origin - keeper of a 'chambre', private chambers of royalty or nobility. From  Old French 'cha(u)mbre' (room/chamber) and ultimately from the Latin 'camera'. Chalmers is the  Scottish version of the name with links to the Scottish clan of Cameron.
