The Anglo-Saxon name Clacket comes from when the family resided in the village of Clegett or Clegett Hall, in the parish of Rochdale, Kent. The surname is derived from the Old Norse word which means a haystack-shaped hill. The surname also has an occupational origin, which means that it is derived form the trade or profession of the original bearer. The name was also given to those who worked as bellringers.

Early Origins of the Clacket family


The surname Clacket was first found in Kent, at Claygate Cross, a hamlet in the Sevenoaks District. Alternatively, the name could have been derived from Claygate, a village in Surrey that dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 where it was first listed as Claigate, a manor of the village Thames Ditton.

Migration of the Clacket family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Clacket or a variant listed above: Thomas Clagett who arrived in Maryland in 1670 and Thomas John Clagett in Maryland in 1767.
