Hi there. I have traced my direct Spittle liniage to Nova Scotia in the early 1800's to Robert Spittle. I am at a dead end from there.
We came across your sight and found it quite interesting. We live in Binghamton, NY. We don't have a lot of information on my husband's grandfather. His name was Clarence E. Spittle and he divorced his wife back when divorce wasn't common. We've always wondered if he may have had any more children (besides my husband's father, Jim).
We know of no relatives on the Spittle side and would love to find out more.
Wonderful to read your very informative homepage!I have always wanted to know more about my strange sur name!
What a brilliant site. My family brought a book about our heritage with similar information but I congratulate you for spreading to the net. I only wish more people new what an interesting history our name has. All the best, don't give it up.
What a wonderful site. I've read information about our surname before but that helps fill in the gaps.
Very interesting to read the history. Some time ago while consulting a book of names a connection was made with a Geoffrey De Hospital. Has anyone heard of this before? E-Mail if you have any info.
According to records we've seen Spittles with an 's' is simply another variation of Spittel, Spittal, Spittle, and the name probably originated as a derivative of type or place of employment, as in a 'hospital worker.' Anyway, we're all related! At least, my husband Paul is. I will email what little I have when I can find it. We live at Cowra, NSW, Australia on the other side of the world!
Great homepage and concept. I am related to John Spittle b1724 via Jonah b1765, Benjamin b1797, William b1823, John b1847 [arrived in Bluff,New Zealand Jan 1 1873], William b1877, and Frederick b1910.
I emigrated to Australia, in 1962 from London. I am married with two sons who were also interested in our history. I would be very keen to hear from you and any additional information you can supply. I still have two brothers in England, who are not on the internet, who would like to know more. Looking forward to your response.

My name is William Spittle from Charlotte, North Carolina in the States. I go by Bill. My wife, Brenda and I are beginning to search for my family roots and came across your website while on the Google search engine. It had today's date (March 3, 2009), but a lot of the entries seem like a few years ago. When reading the Spittle clan page I discovered an entry by my cousin James Leiphart who entered some history about his mom Muriel Leiphart Spittle. From his description the entry was made about 2000 as he mentioned my Dad's passing. Also my cousin Suzanne Leiphart made an entry right after Jim's.
Here's some added Spittle history from what my wife and I have discovered so far. My father was William James Spittle. His only sibling is Muriel Spittle. My grandfather was James Edgar Spittle. As the previous listing stated, he was born in Muncie, Indiana and was a steel man settling in Dearborn, MI working for Ford Motor Company. He had a sister, Lillian. His father was also James Edgar Spittle, mother was Sarah James. Believe they came from Sheffield, England. Sarah's father was Samuel James, and mother Mary Ann Ward. That's as far as we've gotten so far.
My Dad, William James Spittle was born in 1925 in Highland Park, MI. He married my mom, Shirley Louden in 1945. Dad passed away on June 30, 1998 in Sun City Center, FL. My mom is still living in Sun City Center. They had 4 children Nancy Carol born 1948, myself, William Clifford, born 1953, Thomas James, born in 1959, and Robert Allen, born in 1962. Nancy lives in Wendell, Massachusetts. I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, Tom lives in Largo, Florida, and Bob lives in St. Petersburg, Florida. Our children: Nancy has 2 (Gabriel Drohen, and Brianna Drohen), I have 2 children from my first marriage, Abigail Spittle and Daniel Spittle. I remarried 4 years ago. Tom has twin sons, James & Jack Spittle and another older son who does not have the Spittle name. Bob has 2 sons, Tony and Billy.
So there is a bit of history from this small branch of the Spittle tree. We enjoyed reading the info on your site. I hope we can discover more history about our family name. Brenda has researched her family way back and she has learned how to dig and put pieces of info together to discover the right lineage.
Thanks for listening,

Hello, My name is Joshua David Spittle. I love the website, really informative. I was hoping to find out more about the surname. In my case it is somewhat difficult. I came to have the name being that it was my mother's maiden name, given to her by her father, Thomas Spittle, whom I never met. I joke a lot about it, because my mother married when I was young, so growing up I was always...and still am...the only Spittle I know. This was a big surprise to find a site with so many people, and from all over the world, with the same name. Well anyways, would love to hear more. Thanks.

I was just researching some family history and came across your very
interesting website. My maternal grandfather was Albert Spittle but no-one seems
to know very much about
him. We think he was born in Middlesex, UK (possibly near Stains) about 1885. He married Alice Newmarch some time before WWI and had two children, Eileen (my mother) and Tom
who lives in Ipswich.
At some stage (in the 1930s?) he had a lengthy relationship with a woman in Bristol so there may well be a branch of the Spittle family there as well.
He died in 1943 at Exeter.
If anyone can shed further light on this branch of the family I would be very interested.
