Billiter Name Meaning
English: occupational name for a bell-founder, Middle English belleyetere, from Old English belle + geotere. It is unlikely that there would have been enough work to keep anyone employed exclusively in making bells, and there is evidence that bell makers were general founders, engaged for the most part in making smaller domestic items, such as pots and buckles.
