We spell our surname Hewitt from England but that does not matter. Our Hewitt's are from Garforth, Yorkshire, England. I hired a lady there to research our family. I posted on the internet and heard from a lady in Australia who said her family of Hewitt/Hewett's were from England to Australia. She was upset when I replied as her internet is so slow there that my reply clogged her messages for hours !!
You might want to check the Garfield , England area and look around. I am told the surname goes back to Wales spelled Huit?
