THE SAXON CHRONICLE IS A MANUSCRIPT WHICH WAS PAINSTAKINGLY RESEARCHED BYMONKS OF THE 10TH CENTURY AND NOW DWELLS IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. EMERGING THROUGHTHE CHRONICLES OF HISTORY IS ONE OF THE OLDEST FAMILY NAMES, WESCOTT AND THEDISTINGUISHED HISTORY OF THIS SURNAME IS INTERWOVEN INTO THE TAPESTRY OF THEHISTORY OF ENGLAND.
THE FIRST RECORD OF THE NAME WESCOTT, WAS FOUND IN DEVONSHIRE WHERE THEY HADBEEN SEATED FROM VERY ANCIENT TIMES, SOME SAY LONG BEFORE THE NORMAN CONQUESTIN 1066.
THE NAME WESCOTT WAS FOUND IN THE ARCHIVES, THE NAME WAS SOMETIMES REVEALEDAS WESTCOTE, WESTCOT, WESTCOTT, WESTACOTT, AND THESE CHANGES IN SPELLING OCCURREDEVEN BETWEEN FATHER AND SON. IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON, FOR EXAMPLE, FOR A PERSON TOBE BORN WITH ONE SPELLING VARIATION, MARRIED WITH ANOTHER, AND FOR YET ANOTHERTO APPEAR ON HIS GRAVESTONE. SCRIBES SPELT THE NAME THE WAY IT SOUNDED AS ITWAS TOLD TO THEM. FROM CENTURY TO CENTURY SPELLINGS CHANGED.
THE FAMILY NAME WESCOTT WAS FOUND TO BE DESCENDED FROM THE SAXON RACE. THESAXONS WERE A FAIR SKINNED PEOPLE LED BY THE BROTHERS GENERALCOMMANDERS HENGISTAND HORSA, WHO SETTLED IN ENGLAND FROM ABOUT THE YEAR 400 A.D. THEY SETTLED FIRSTLYON THE SOUTH EAST COAST, COMING FROM THE RHINE VALLEY. THEY SPREAD NORTH ANDWESTWARD FROM KENT AND DURING THE NEXT FOUR HUNDRED YEARS FORCED THE ANCIENTBRITONS BACK INTO WALES AND CORNWALL TO THE WEST, CUMBRIA AND SCOTLAND TO THENORTH. THE ANGLES HELD THE EASTERN COASTLINE, THE SOUTH FOLK IN SUFFOLK, THENORTH FOLK IN NORFOLK. UNDER ANGLOSAXON FIVE CENTURY RULE THE NATION DIVIDEDINTO FIVE SEPARATE KINGDOMS, A HIGH KING BEING ELECTED AS SUPREME RULER. ALFREDTHE GREAT EMERGED IN THE 9TH CENTURY AS THE SAXON LEADER TO DISPEL THE DANISHINVASION.
ENGLAND, BY 1066, WAS ABLY LED BY HAROLD, KING OF THE SAXONS AND WAS ENJOYINGREASONABLE PEACE AND PROSPERITY. THE NORMAN INVASION FROM FRANCE UNDER DUKE WILLIAMOF NORMANDY, AND THEIR VICTORY AT THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS, FOUND SAXON LAND OWNERSTO BE FORFEITED THEIR LAND. WILLIAM, WITH AN ARMY OF 40,000 DROVE NORTH, WASTINGTHE NORTHERN COUNTIES. BOTH REBELLIOUS NORMAN NOBLES AND SAXONS FLED OVER THEBORDER INTO SCOTLAND. THOSE SAXONS WHO REMAINED WERE RESTIVE UNDER NORMAN RULE,AND MANY MOVED NORTHWARD TO THE MIDLANDS, LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE WHERE NORMANINFLUENCED PREVAILED LESS.
THE FAMILY NAME WESCOTT EMERGED AS A NOTABLE ENGLISH FAMILY NAME IN THE COUNTYOF DEVON. BY THE 14TH CENTURY THEY HAD BRANCHED TO RADDON IN THAT SAME SHIRE,AND TO WESTCOTE IN THE COUNTY OF WORCESTER. OF THIS LATER BRANCH, THOMAS WESTCOTEMARRIED INTO THE DISTINGUISHED LYTTELTON FAMILY, AND MARRIED ELIZABETH DE LYTTELTON.THEY WERE ANCESTORS OF THE BARONS LYTTELTON, BARONS WESTCOTE, BARONS HATHERTON,AND SO ON. THEY ALSO INTERMARRIED WITH THE QUARTERMAINES OF CORNWALL. NOTABLEAMONGST THE FAMILY AT THIS TIME WAS SIR THOMAS WESTCOTE OF WESTCOTE.
THE NEXT TWO OR THREE CENTURIES FOUND THE SURNAME WESCOTT FLOURISHING AND CONTRIBUTINGGREATLY TO THE CULTURE OF THE NATION.

PROTESTANTISM, THE NEWLY FOND POLITICALFERVOUR OF CROMWELLIANISM, AND THE REMNANTS OF THE ROMAN CHURCH REJECTED ALLBUT THE MOST ARDENT FOLLOWERS. AS EACH GROUP GAINED POWER DURING THESE TURBULENTTIMES MANY WERE BURNT AT THE STAKE BUT MANY MORE WERE BANISHED FROM THE LAND,LOSING THEIR TITLES, ESTATES AND STATUS. MANY FAMILIES WERE FREELY "ENCOURAGED"TO MIGRATE TOIRELAND, OR TO THE COLONIES. SOME WERE REWARED WITH GRANTS OF LANDS,OTHERS WERE INDENTURED AS SERVANTS FOR AS LONG AS TEN YEARS.

THEY WERE ALSO KNOWN AS THE "UNDERTAKERS".THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE FAMILY NAME MIGRATED TO IRELAND, BUT THIS DOESNOT PRECLUDE THE POSSIBILITY OF THEIR SCATTERED MIGRATION TO THAT COUNTRY.
THESE UNSETTLING TIMES WERE DISTURBING AND THE NEW WORLD BECKONED THE ADVENTUROUS.THEY MIGRATED, SOME VOLUNTARILY FROM IRELAND, SOME BY ARMY SERVICE, BUT MOSTLYDIRECTLY FROM ENGLAND, THEIR HOME TERRITORIES. SOME ALSO MOVED TO THE EUROPEANCONTINENT.
