Van der Kiste Vanderkiste (Vanderhiste)
« on: Friday 04 May 12 12:22 BST (UK) »
This is a post for Vanderkiste, sometimes (and probably originally) Van der Kiste, and often mistranscribed as VanderHiste.

It mean 'Of the Box' or possibly more accurately - 'cist' - like the grave..!

I have the family in London, and later Croydon - I also know a branch of excisemen in the family moved to Ireland (whether it was because they were excisemen and were posted there I am unsure).
The earliest I have found seem to have been priests and apothecaries, but if anyone is aware of when the first immigrants from The Netherlands to England then I would be very glad to hear from you!
