Where did the English Barnicoat family come from? What is the English Barnicoat family crest and coat of arms? When did the Barnicoat family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the Barnicoat family history?


Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name Barnicoat were recorded, including Barnicutt, Barnicott, Barnicot, Barnicoat, Barnicote, Barnecut, Barnecutt, Barnycott, Barneycott, Barricutt and many more.

First found in Devonshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1279 when Thomas de Bernecot from Deven branched to Oxfordshire and held estates.

To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Barnicoat family emigrate to North America:
