Where did the Scottish Stotts family come from? What is the Scottish Stotts family crest and coat of arms? When did the Stotts family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Stotts family history?

The Stotts surname is generally thought to derive from the Middle English word "stott," meaning a "steer," or "bull." As such it was likely originally an occupational name for a cattleman, or perhaps a nickname. Some instances of the name in Scotland may have come from the Viking name Stoti, which likely arrived with the 9th century Norse colonization of Strathclyde and Aberdeenshire.
