The ancestors of the Snot family lived among the Strathclyde-Briton people of the Scottish/English Borderlands. Snot is a name for someone who lived at the town of Snodgrass in the county of Ayrshire. The name of this place is derived from the Northern Old English words snod, meaning smooth, and grass, meaning grass.

Snot Early Origins



The surname Snot was first found in Ayrshire (Gaelic: Siorrachd Inbhir Àir), formerly a county in the southwestern Strathclyde region of Scotland, that today makes up the Council Areas of South, East, and North Ayrshire, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Snot Spelling Variations



Spelling and translation were hardly exact sciences in Medieval Scotland. Sound, rather than any set of rules, was the basis for spellings, so one name was often spelled different ways even within a single document. Spelling variations are thus an extremely common occurrence in Medieval Scottish names. Snot has been spelled Snodgrass, Snodgers, Snedgrass, Snadgrass and others.

The Great Migration



Such hard times forced many to leave their homeland in search of opportunity across the Atlantic. Many of these families settled along the east coast of North America in communities that would become the backbones of the young nations of the United States and Canada. The ancestors of many of these families have rediscovered their roots in the 20th century through the establishment of Clan societies and other patriotic Scottish organizations. Among them: Andrew and Mrs. Snodgrass arrived in Philadelphia in 1822; James, Robert, Samuel, and William Snodgrass all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1865..
