An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Nethercott 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.

Nethercott Early Origins



The surname Nethercott 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.

Nethercott Spelling Variations



Nethercott has been spelled many different ways. Before English spelling became standardized over the last few hundred years, spelling variations in names were a common occurrence. As the English language changed in the Middle Ages, absorbing pieces of Latin and French, as well as other languages, the spelling of people's names also changed considerably, even over a single lifetime. Spelling variants included: Nethery, Nethercott, Nethercoat, Nethercott and others.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Nethercotts to arrive on North American shores:
