Phillpot is a name that was brought to England by the ancestors of the Phillpot family when they emigrated following the Norman Conquest of 1066. The name Phillpot comes from 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.

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Phillpot arrived in North America very early:

Phillpot Settlers in United States in the 17th Century

  • Margaret Phillpot who settled in Virginia in 1654 with her husband

Phillpot Settlers in New Zealand in the 19th Century

  • William Phillpot, aged 26, a farm labourer, arrived in Wellington, New Zealand aboard the ship "New Era" in 1855
