The surname Leete has undergone various changes and modifications in spelling such as

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.
