In ancient Anglo-Saxon England, the ancestors of the Chilcote surname lived in the chapelry of Chilcote, which was in the parish of Burton-upon-Trent in Derbyshire. The surname Chilcote belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chilcote Early Origins



The surname Chilcote was first found in Dorset 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.

Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Chilcote or a variant listed above:
