Only recently has spelling become standardized in the English language. As the English language evolved in the Middle Ages, the spelling of names changed also. The name Nethercutt has undergone many spelling variations, including Nethery, Nethercott, Nethercoat, Nethercott and others.

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.

To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Nethercutt were among those contributors: 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.
