Pat Brooks Doolittle's thought to have come from Normandy.

From "The Doolittle Family" p 20, "It is recorded that one of the members of the expedition under William of Normandy bore the surname of Du Litell or de Dolieta (meaing "of Dolieta", a place on the Norman coast), and various modification sof it appear in the old English records of succeeding centuries."

Notes from Old English Records:

Radulphus de Dolieta, Testemonio: For forgiveness of misdeeds of himself and his predecessors and successors he grants in the time of William, King of England, to the Monks of St. Michael for the brotherhood and the prayers of St. Michael and the Monks, his servants, all the dues on his lands, etc. [Recorded in original charters in archives of La Manche, Abbey of Mont St. Michael for Benedictine monks in Diocese of Avranche, France, A.D. 1085-1087. ]

Note: Dolieta is said to have been the name of a place on the coast of Normandy, probably in the province of Manche (which included the peninsula on which Cherbourg is located) near the town of Avranches and the neighboring Mt. St. Michael; and this Rudolph of Dolieta, a Norman noble, who accompanied the Conqueror appears to have been the progenitor of all our family in England.
