THE ANCIENT HISTORY OF THE SURNAME "WESCOTT"
THE SAXON CHRONICLE IS A MANUSCRIPT WHICH WAS PAINSTAKINGLY RESEARCHED BY MONKS OF THE 10TH CENTURY AND NOW DWELLS IN THE BRITISH MUSEUM. EMERGING THROUGH THE CHRONICLES OF HISTORY IS ONE OF THE OLDEST FAMILY NAMES, WESCOTT AND THE DISTINGUISHED HISTORY OF THIS SURNAME IS INTERWOVEN INTO THE TAPESTRY OF THE HISTORY OF ENGLAND.
THE FIRST RECORD OF THE NAME WESCOTT, WAS FOUND IN DEVONSHIRE WHERE THEY HAD BEEN SEATED FROM VERY ANCIENT TIMES, SOME SAY LONG BEFORE THE NORMAN CONQUEST IN 1066.
THE NAME WESCOTT WAS FOUND IN THE ARCHIVES, THE NAME WAS SOMETIMES REVEALED AS WESTCOTE, WESTCOT, WESTCOTT, WESTACOTT, AND THESE CHANGES IN SPELLING OCCURRED EVEN BETWEEN FATHER AND SON. IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON, FOR EXAMPLE, FOR A PERSON TO BE BORN WITH ONE SPELLING VARIATION, MARRIED WITH ANOTHER, AND FOR YET ANOTHER TO APPEAR ON HIS GRAVESTONE. SCRIBES SPELT THE NAME THE WAY IT SOUNDED AS IT WAS TOLD TO THEM. FROM CENTURY TO CENTURY SPELLINGS CHANGED.
THE FAMILY NAME WESCOTT WAS FOUND TO BE DESCENDED FROM THE SAXON RACE. THE SAXONS WERE A FAIR SKINNED PEOPLE LED BY THE BROTHERS GENERAL\COMMANDERS HENGIST AND HORSA, WHO SETTLED IN ENGLAND FROM ABOUT THE YEAR 400 A.D. THEY SETTLED FIRSTLY ON THE SOUTH EAST COAST, COMING FROM THE RHINE VALLEY. THEY SPREAD NORTH AND WESTWARD FROM KENT AND DURING THE NEXT FOUR HUNDRED YEARS FORCED THE ANCIENT BRITONS BACK INTO WALES AND CORNWALL TO THE WEST, CUMBRIA AND SCOTLAND TO THE NORTH. THE ANGLES HELD THE EASTERN COASTLINE, THE SOUTH FOLK IN SUFFOLK, THE NORTH FOLK IN NORFOLK. UNDER ANGLO\SAXON FIVE CENTURY RULE THE NATION DIVIDED INTO FIVE SEPARATE KINGDOMS, A HIGH KING BEING ELECTED AS SUPREME RULER. ALFRED THE GREAT EMERGED IN THE 9TH CENTURY AS THE SAXON LEADER TO DISPEL THE DANISH INVASION.
ENGLAND, BY 1066, WAS ABLY LED BY HAROLD, KING OF THE SAXONS AND WAS ENJOYING REASONABLE PEACE AND PROSPERITY. THE NORMAN INVASION FROM FRANCE UNDER DUKE WILLIAM OF NORMANDY, AND THEIR VICTORY AT THE BATTLE OF HASTINGS, FOUND SAXON LAND OWNERS TO BE FORFEITED THEIR LAND. WILLIAM, WITH AN ARMY OF 40,000 DROVE NORTH, WASTING THE NORTHERN COUNTIES. BOTH REBELLIOUS NORMAN NOBLES AND SAXONS FLED OVER THE BORDER INTO SCOTLAND. THOSE SAXONS WHO REMAINED WERE RESTIVE UNDER NORMAN RULE, AND MANY MOVED NORTHWARD TO THE MIDLANDS, LANCASHIRE AND YORKSHIRE WHERE NORMAN INFLUENCED PREVAILED LESS.
THE FAMILY NAME WESCOTT EMERGED AS A NOTABLE ENGLISH FAMILY NAME IN THE COUNTY OF 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 WESTCOTE MARRIED 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. NOTABLE AMONGST THE FAMILY AT THIS TIME WAS SIR THOMAS WESTCOTE OF WESTCOTE.
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
IN IRELAND THEY BECAME KNOWN AS THE "ADVENTURERS FOR LAND IN IRELAND". THEY WERE GOVERNMENT SPONSORED PRETESTANT SETTLERS WHO "UNDERTOOK" TO KEEP THEIR FAITH, BEING GRANTED LANDS PREVIOUSLY OWNED BY THE CATHOLIC IRISH FOR ONLY NOMINAL PAYMENT. THEY WERE ALSO KNOWN AS THE "UNDERTAKERS". THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT THE FAMILY NAME MIGRATED TO IRELAND, BUT THIS DOES NOT 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 MOSTLY DIRECTLY FROM ENGLAND, THEIR HOME TERRITORIES. SOME ALSO MOVED TO THE EUROPEAN CONTINENT. MEMBERS OFTHE FAMILY NAME WESCOTT SAILED ABOARD THE ARMADA OF SMALL SAILING SHIPS KNOWN AS THE "WHITE SAILS" WHICH PLIED THE STORMY ATLANTIC. THESE OVERCROWDED SHIPS WERE PESTILENCE RIDDEN, SOMETIMES 30% TO 40% OF THE PASSENGER LIST NEVER REACHING THEIR DESTINATION, THEIR NUMBERS DECIMATED BY SICKNESS AND THE ELEMENTS. MANY WERE BURIED AT SEA.
INCLUDED AMONGST THE FIRST MIGRANTS WHO SETTLED IN NORTH AMERICA WHICH COULD BE CONSIDERED A KINSMAN OF THE SURNAME WESCOTT, OR A VARIABLE SPELLING OF THAT FAMILY NAME WAS JOHN WESTCOTT WAS A SHOREMAN OF ST. JOHN'S, NEWFOUNDLAND IN 1774; DANIEL WESTCOAT SETTLED IN BOSTON, MASS. IN 1766; PETER AND SARAH WESTCOATE SETTLED IN NEW ENGLAND IN 1771; STUKLEY WESTCOTT SETTLED IN SALEM, MASS. IN 1630; JOHN WESTCUTT SETTLED IN BARBADOS IN 1700.
THE EAST COAST PORTS WERE CROWDED. FROM THE PORT OF ENTRY MANY SETTLERS TREKKED THEIR WAY WEST, JOINING THE WAGON TRAINS TO THE PRAIRIES OR TO THE WEST COAST. DURING THE AMERICAN WAR OF INDEPENDENCE, MANY LOYALISTS MADE THEIR WAY NORTH TO CANADA ABOUT 1790, AND BECAME KNOWN AS THE UNITED EMPIRE LOYALISTS. THEY WERE GRANTED EQUIVALENT LANDS ALONG THE BANKS OF THE ST. LAWRENCE RIVER AND IN THE NIAGARA PENINSULA..
