In Reply to: Cutts, Royston, Barnsley by Kerry Christie of 431

My grandfather (deceased 2000) moved from Royston (S Yorkshire nr Barnsley) to Hull (E yorkshire) and married. He was one of about 8 siblings. They were predominantly a mining family. His father (my great granfather - Stanley Cutts) was a miner in Royston. And his father (my great great granfather) owned and ran a transport business from Royston employing over 50 men and many horses and carts etc - the business was called Cutts & co - I have a photograph dating approx 1890 of the premises and employees. He owned a lot of land and houses in the area as well as a large landed property with servants but the business was divided and much of it lost. I am aware that the Cutts name can be traced via headstones in local graveyard! back to almost 1600 in Royston. There seems to be some debate over whether the origin is German (Rhine valley region) or Russian. Its certainly not English. The name seems to have popped up in the UK about 600 years ago.
