The Netherco surname is derived from the Middle English words "nether(e)," meaning "lower," and "cot," meaning "cottage." It was most likely a habitational name created from any of several places so named; such as Nethercott in Oxfordshire, Nethercote in Warwickshire, or Nethercott in Devon.

Netherco Early Origins



The surname Netherco was first found in Northampton and Oxfordshire 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 1208 when Ern de Nethercot held estates in Oxfordshire.

Netherco Spelling Variations



Until the dictionary, an invention of only the last few hundred years, the English language lacked any comprehensive system of spelling rules. Consequently, spelling variations in names are frequently found in early Anglo-Saxon and later Anglo-Norman documents. One person's name was often spelled several different ways over a lifetime. The recorded variations of Netherco include Nethery, Nethercott, Nethercoat, Nethercott and others.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Netherco were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: Nicho Nethercott, who arrived in Virginia in 1652; James Nethery, who settled in Maryland in 1716; John Nethercliffe, who arrived in America in 1733; William Nethercliffe, who settled in America in 1752.
