Task List

This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

1. Origin of The Name

Many Feel that the name Mutimer is a variation of the name Mortimer. I would like to find where the variation occured or if the name stands on its own. The name seems to originate in Suffolk, England. A lot of my ancestors were found in Hoxne, Suffolk. The oldest Mutimer profile is for Thomas Mutimer, born in Suffolk around 1699.

Searching for the origins, I have come across 3 families in Suffolk that were having children in the 1750s. This is the earliest date I can find recorded so far. I am going to trace these families and hopefully connect them to know profiles.

1. Anthony and Elizabeth Mutimer in Denham, Suffolk

Sarah Mutimer Baptized 2 June 1754
Lydia Mutimer Baptized 6 June 1755
Anthony Mutimer Baptized 26 Dec 1756
Elizabeth Mutimer Baptized 23 April 1758
Ann Mutimer Baptized 25 Dec 1759

2. Stephen and Frances Mutimer in Redlingfield, Suffolk (Name is listed as Mutum in most cases)

Ann Mutum Baptized 20 Jun 1747
Frances Mutum Baptized 15 Jan 1749
Stephen Mutum Baptized 23 Dec 1750
James Mutum Baptized 9 Feb 1752
Stephen Mutimer Baptized 18 May 1755

3. Elizabeth Mutimer in Eye, Suffolk

Charles Mutimer Baptized 14 Nov 1756

2. Relationships and Connections

There seems to be 4 countries where Mutimer families have popped up, England, United States, Canada and Australia

I would love to find relationships between the families in these countries.
