William Petie, "Petie" assumed to be a variation of the name "Petty," was recorded in the "Feet of Fines" in Nottinghamshire, England in 1198. (The term "Feet of Fines" denotes a complicated system of conveying land ownership.)
 
The above paragraph is not a claim that my family line is connected with William Petie of Nottinghamshire, England.  It is simply an observation as to the first time a variation of my ancestors' name is known to have been used.


This page is created from a variety of sources. Because I have few supporting documents, I urge serious genealogists not to copy what I have here. This list is intended mainly as information for my descendants. I am making it available to them, or to anyone else who wants to use it as a beginning point to do serious research.
