Possibly an English form of "fil laitière"? meaning, "over dairy". The surname Fillaiter is also found in the United States, in Ohio. This is also the same with Fillister. Now, the surname Filister is found in Minnesota, but I'm not too sure if the Filisters of Minnesota are English in origin or related to the Fillister of Ohio.
