The Pettigrew Family

 
 

Name Origin: SCOTLAND, IRELAND, ENGLAND

 

The name Pettigrew comes from the ancient Norman culture that was established in Britain after the Conquest of 1066.  It was a name for a "small man".  The name originally derived from the Old French words "petit" meaning "small or little" and "cru" meaning "growth".
Our branch of the family seems to have been in Scotland, France and Ireland before coming to America. At present our most dissonant Pettigrew ancestor was James Pettigrew I who was married to Dame Geiles Moncrieff.
 

The Pettigrew family connects to the Moore and Cochran lines before Martha Pettigrew married John Witherspoon prior to 1747, connecting those two branches of the family.  The Witherspoons connects to the Setzers and Loftins.

 
Even though there are numerous Pettigrews in North Carolina, the states with the largest number of Pettigrews are Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Tennessee, Sough Carolina and Texas.
