The name Philcox reached English shores for the first time with the ancestors of the Philcox family as they migrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Philcox is based on the name Phillipot, which is a version of the ancient given name Phillip. Phillip derives from the Greek name Phillipos, which derives from the words philein, meaning to love, and hippos, meaning horse.

Philcox Early Origins



The surname Philcox was first found in Herefordshire where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

Philcox Spelling Variations



It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, Anglo-Norman surnames like Philcox are characterized by many spelling variations. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages such as Norman French and Latin, even literate people regularly changed the spelling of their names. The variations of the name Philcox include Phillpott, Phillpotts, Phillpot, Phillpots, Philpot, Philpots, Philpott and many more.
