An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The ancient history of the Chilcott name begins with the ancient Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from when the family resided in the chapelry of Chilcote, which was in the parish of Burton-upon-Trent in Derbyshire. The surname Chilcott belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Chilcott Early Origins



The surname Chilcott 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.

Chilcott Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Chilcott include Chilcott, Chilcot, Chilcote, Childecock, Childecott, Childecott, Chillcot, Chillcote and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Chilcott or a variant listed above:
