The Norkutt surname is a habitational name, taken on from any of several places, such as Northcott in Devon. These place names are derived from the Old English words "norš," meaning "north," and "cot," meaning a "cottage," or "shelter."

Norkutt Early Origins



The surname Norkutt was first found in Devon at Northcote (Northcott), a hamlet, in the parish of Boyton, union of Holsworthy, hundred of Black Torrington. The surname claims descendancy "from Galfridus, who was of Northcote, in the parish of East-Downe, in the twelfth century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
