The roots of the Anglo-Saxon name Heathcott come from when the family resided in either of the settlements called Heathcote in Derbyshire and Warwickshire. The surname Heathcott belongs to the large category of Anglo-Saxon habitation names, which are derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads.

Heathcott Early Origins



The surname Heathcott 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]

While the surname is from Derbyshire, the first record of the name was found in Essex, where Walter Hathecok was listed there in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



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 Heathcott or a variant listed above: John Heathcoate settled in Jamaica in 1685; Jasper Heathcoat settled in New England in 1850; Edward Heathcote settled in Virginia in 1721; along with James.
