    Kater, Edward (male) 1816 - 1866 Irish

    F.R.S., member of Royal Irish Acad; Delete “/17” from dob. EMC, VPR 36 (2003), 360; The family remained aware of its German origins; a family history shows the amusing coat of arms the family created in the 19th century (probably not registered with the College of Arms)—a tom cat (Kater) rampant. However, occasional misspelling of the name in the mid-19th century as ‘Cayter’ indicates that its pronunciation had been anglicized. See Boase II: 161.
