Jenot is an ancient Anglo-Saxon surname that came from the baptismal name John or Joan. The surname Jenot referred to the son of John or Joan which belongs to the category of patronymic or metronymic surnames. In Old English, patronyms and matronyms were formed by adding a variety of suffixes to personal names, which changed over time and from place to place. For example, after the Norman Conquest, sunu and sune, which meant son, were the most common patronymic suffixes. In the 12th and 13th centuries, the most common patronymic names included the word filius, which meant son. By the 14th century, the suffix son had replaced these earlier versions. Surnames that were formed with filius or son were more common in the north of England and it was here that the number of individuals without surnames was greatest at this time.

Jenot Early Origins



The surname Jenot was first found in Sussex where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.

As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Jenot has been recorded under many different variations, including Jennet, Jennett, Jonnott, Jonnot, Jonnotson and others.

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 Jenot or a variant listed above: John Jennet settled in Pennsylvania in 1682; Peter Jennett arrived in Maryland in 1776.
