PYATT Family History

This unusual name is a medieval nickname surname of French origin. The derivation is from the Old French pre 11th Century 'pye', meaning the magpie. Pyatt is the diminutive form, the suffix 'att' denoting the 'son of' or 'little'. Presumably the original nickname was given to one who enjoyed bright clothes. Very occasionally this surname may be locational from Pyotts Hill in Hampshire, as the variants in the modern idiom include Pyott, and Pyett. During the Middle Ages when it was becoming increasingly common for people to migrate from their birth place to seek work elsewhere, they would often adopt the place name as a means of identification thus resulting in the wide dispersal of the name.
