An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


Of all the Anglo-Saxon names to come from Britain, Heathcoat is one of the most ancient. The name is a result of the original family having lived in either of the settlements called Heathcote in Derbyshire and Warwickshire. The surname Heathcoat belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

The first dictionaries that appeared in the last few hundred years did much to standardize the English language. Before that time, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. The language was changing, incorporating pieces of other languages, and the spelling of names changed with it. Heathcoat has been spelled many different ways, including Heathcote, Heathcoat, Heathcoat and others.

First found in Derbyshire where the name could have been derived from someone who lived at "the heath-cottage" or "the cot on this heath." [1] While the surname is from Derbyshire, the first record of the name was found in Essex, where Walter Hathecok was listed there in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [2]

Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Heathcoats to arrive in North America:
