The origins of the Heathcote name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Heathcote was originally derived from a family having lived in either of the settlements called Heathcote in Derbyshire and Warwickshire. The surname Heathcote belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Heathcote Early Origins



The surname Heathcote was first found in Derbyshire where the name could have been derived from someone who lived at "the heath-cottage" or "the cot on this heath." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants:
