PETTIS Family HistoryRecorded in many spellings including Pitt, Pitts, Pett, Petts, Pott, Potts, Pettus, Pates, Patis, Patise, Pettis, and Pettys this is a surname of pre 7th century Olde English and Anglo-Saxon origins. It is usually topographical and derives from the Olde English pre 7th century word "pytt" meaning a pit or hollow, and where appropriate the fused suffix '-hus' meaning a house. This is also dialectally 'disguised' as -es, -en, - ys, or -ise. Topographical surnames were among the earliest created, since both natural and man-made features in the landscape provided easily recognisable distinguishing names in the small communities of the Middle Ages.

I have been researching Pettis/Pettus surname. My maternal grandmother was Ito Pettis who married my grandfather, Jim Yates. I was told that we were part Cherokee, but it does not show up in my DNA report. However, the names Pettis or Pettus is found on the Cherokee Roll of Color in Cherokee, NC. Has anyone heard of a race called Black Indians? It was inter-racial marriage between black slaves and Cherokee Indians.
