The surname Sapcote was first found in Huntingdon. where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the 12th century when they held estates in that shire.

Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages.

Variations of the name Sapcote include Sapcotts, Sapcot, Sapcott, Sapcote, Sappcote, Sappcotts and many more.

Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Sapcote or a variant listed above: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
