Name forms
Leate, Leet, Leete

The surname Leete has undergone various changes and modifications in spelling such as Letie, Lete, Lety, Leet, Lette, Lytte and similar forms with the preposition de and the article le. As early, however, as the reign of Queen Elizabeth, Thomas Leete, of Oakington, used the present style, Leete, and his descendants have almost invariably followed his example in this respect. Some have spelled the name Leet. In 1273 we find a Roger de Leyt, of Lynton Parva, Cambridgeshire, and from that date the surname occurs in various counties of England. A superb history of the Leete family, including the American branch, was published in 1906 by Joseph Leete. A first edition of this work was published in 1881. The Leete coat-of-arms: Argent on a fesse gules between two rolls of matches sable, fired proper a martlet or. Crest: On a ducal coronet or, an antique lamp or, fired proper.
