An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Nott name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived at the knot, the summit of a rocky hill, from the residence near that place.

Nott Early Origins



The surname Nott was first found in Derbyshire where traditionally the name was descended from the Scandinavian King Canute, or Cnut. Drayton sings "The Knot that called was Canutus, bird of old, of that great King of Danes, his name that still doth hold, his appetite to please that far and near was sought, for his, as some have said, from Denmark hither brought."

The Great Migration



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 Nott were among those contributors:
