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

Origins Available: English, Scottish


The surname Scott is derived from the proud Boernician clans of the Scottish-English border region. The Boernicians, along with the Strathclyde Britons, were one of the ancient tribes of the Scottish/English Borderlands. These tribes were made up of the clans from which so many Scottish names are derived.

The surname denotes one who came from Scotland, as in 'the Scot.' The double 't' in Scott is now the most common rendition of this name. The Scotts lived in Roxburgh (now part of the region of Borders), Scotland.

Scott Early Origins



The surname Scott was first found in Kent, where a family of Scott have been found in Brabourne since the 14th century. Traditionally, they claim descent from Alexander, a younger brother of John de Baliol, king of Scotland, who had settled at Chilham Castle, county Kent.
