Kettering can trace its name origins back to an early Romano-British settlement to the north of the present town an Anglo-Saxon settlement possibly to the east of the medieval village. It is in the mid-tenth century that we have our first historical reference to Kettering in a charter of 956 AD in which King Edwy granted ten “cassati” of land to his then Aelfsige the Goldsmith. The boundaries delineated in this charter would have been recognisable to most inhabitants of Kettering for the last thousand years and indeed can still be walked today. It is possible that Aelfsige the Goldsmith gave Kettering to the monastery of Peterborough as King Edgar in a charter dated 972 confirmed it to that monastery. Certainly at the time of the Domesday survey in 1086, Kettering manor is listed as a property held by the Abbey of Peterborough. Words and names ending with ‘ing’ usually derive from the early Saxon word inga or ingas meaning ‘the people of the’ or ‘tribe’. Ketter’ing’ is no exception as we can see this root in literary spellings used in the 10th century Cytringan, Kyteringas and Keteiringan.
The prefix in this name, however, is more difficult to translate. Some say it comes from a tribal leader’s name Cuthfrith or Cutfrith but other possibilities have been suggested. One is that it is from cetel, the Saxon word for a ‘narrow valley’; another is that it derives from cyta, the Saxon for a kite. Kites were common birds of prey in early medieval times. In the Domesday Book (1086) the spelling was Cateringe and in 1557 Ketteryng.

"Thankyou so much for the care and speed that you gave me for scrapping my car. I'd had her a long time and was sad to see her go, but the guy who removed the car was so professional about it, it was easier than I thought. I would definitely recommend you to anybody in the future." Les & Jackie Eales
