Fancot Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Fancourt, Fancor, Cancour, Fancott, Fancutt, Fancot, Fancut, Fancort, Fanecourt, Fanecor and many more.

Among early immigrants bearing the name Fancot or a variant listed above were: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
