ESCOTT Family HistoryThis long-established name is of Anglo-Saxon origin, and may be either a locational or a topographical surname. As a locational name, it derives from any one of the places in England which are named with the Olde English pre 7th Century "east", east, and "cot(e)", cottage, shelter, especially one for animals, usually sheep. These places include Eastcott (Middlesex and Wiltshire); Eastcotts (Bedfordshire); Eastcourt (Wiltshire); and Escot (Devonshire). Early recordings of these placenames are in such forms as "Estcote" (1200); "Escot" (1490); "Escote" (901); and "Estcot" (1227).
