Cæeteric (10th Century), Chaterih or Chateriz (11th Century), Chatric (13th Century) and Chatteris (Modern)

Chatteris is one of the four market towns of the Fenland District of Cambridgeshire, the others being March, Whittlesey and Wisbech. (External websites will open in new window)

The town and parishes of Chatteris in Fenland.

As can be seen above name of the town of Chatteris has changed very little over the last 1000 years from its first appearance as Cæeteric in 974. It is possible that the first element of the name derives from the Old English name 'Ceatta' but it is more likely related to the word 'ceto' meaning 'forest'. The second element of the name 'ric' translates as 'stream', so perhaps Chatteris means 'Forest Stream' and given the towns location on the edge of the Great Fen there is more than an element of possibility in this formulation.
