In Reply to: Stitt family in Ireland by Gary James Stitt of 410

Gary,

You seem to have some good connections. I am looking for the Stitt (Stit) family in Ireland. My mother told me they originally came from County Clare... but that may not be so. I'll have to double-check with her. I don't have any first names yet, but I'm trying to develop a family tree. Can you tell me, is Stitt an indiginous name to Ireland, or is it an emigrant name from Scotland or England? I seem to see a great deal of Scottish references on the web page. I would be greatly interested to know... per my mom, her granny said she was Scotch-Irish. I've since learned that was a common distintion made when folks emigrated to America as there was such discrimination towards the Irish, and people would take steps to dissociate themselves from the perceived stigma.

Thank you,

Tina
