WESTCOTT Family History

Recorded in many forms including Westacott, Westacot, Westcot, Westcott, Westercott, and dialectals such as Wescot, Wescott, and Wesket, this is an English surname. It is both topographical and locational, and derives from the pre 7th century Olde English words 'west cota'. This can mean either somebody who dwelt in a cottage to the west of the main village, or perhaps lay at the west end of the village, or from one of the villages actually called Westcott or Westcote in the counties of Devonshire, Berkshire, Gloucester, Warwick, Buckingham and Surrey.
