But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1208 when Ern de Nethercot held estates in Oxfordshire.

Migration of the Netherscott family to the New World and Oceana
For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Netherscott surname or a spelling variation of the name include: 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.
