This web site is devoted to the history of the Bitting Family in America, and
in memory of my parents Ernest and Helen.
The Bitting Family in America can trace its origins to
and Ann Catharina Bitting who emigrated with their children to Pennsylvania
in 1723. Before leaving their home town of
in the German Palatinate, they obtained a
passport which stated that they
were free to emigrate. They settled in what is now New Hanover Township,
Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. From this first family, the name has
spread throughout the United States.
