Bitting Family History
This web site is devoted to the history of the Bitting Family in America, and
in memory of my parents Ernest and Helen.
The Bitting Family in America can trace its origins to
and Ann Catharina Bitting who emigrated with their children to Pennsylvania
in 1723. Before leaving their home town of
in the German Palatinate, they obtained a
passport which stated that they
were free to emigrate. They settled in what is now New Hanover Township,
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. From this first family, the name has
spread throughout the United States.
In addition to the descendants of Henrich and Ann Catharina Bitting, there are other known Bitting lines:
- African-American - there are a number of African-Americans who are named Bitting. More information can be found here.
- Britain - a Bitting line was established in England in the 18th century. More
information can be found here.
- Germany - the Bitting name is still found in Germany. The connection with
the founder of the American branch is not yet known.
