The name Brockatt is part of the ancient legacy of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. Brockatt was a name used for a young, headstrong person. The surname Brockatt is derived from the Old French words broque and brocke, which became the Old English words broket and brocket c. 1410. All of these words refer to a stag in its second year with its first set of horns. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Brockatt Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Brockatt include Bocket, Brockett, Brockhead and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Brockatt were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: John Brocket settled in Boston Massachusetts in 1635; William Brockett settled in Virginia in the same year; John Brocket settled in Delaware in 1785.
