CHARETTE Family History

This interesting surname is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and is a nickname deriving from the Olde English pre 7th Century "scir", fair, bright, with the Anglo-Norman French intensive suffix "-ard". The creation of surnames from nicknames was a common practice in the Middle Ages, and many modern-day surnames derive from medieval nicknames referring to personal characteristics, as in this instance "the fair haired one", or "the bright one". The surname is first recorded in the late 13th Century (see below), and has many variant spellings ranging from Sherratt, Sheret, Sherrard and Sherrott to Charrit, Charet and Charret(t).
