Origins Available: English, Spanish
Anglo-Saxon surname Clarrot came from the given name Clarret. This surname is metronymic in origin, and is based on the first name of the mother having derived from the Latin Clara which literally means bright and fair. Metronymic names were not uncommon during the medieval period. There were a large number of widows in some English communities, and as a result the children of these women would be referred to as the widow's child.

Migration of the Clarrot family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, the Canadas, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Clarrot surname or a spelling variation of the name include: Joseph Claret who arrived in New Orleans in 1821.
