The origins the old family name Scarlott can be found within medieval Scotland. While the patronymic and metronymic surnames, which are derived from the name of the father and mother respectively, are the most common form of a hereditary surname in Scotland, occupational surnames also emerged during the late Middle Ages. Many people, such as the Scarlott family, adopted the name of their occupation as their surname. However, an occupational name did not become a hereditary surname until the office or type of employment became hereditary. The surname Scarlott was an occupational name for a person who dyed bright fabrics. Interestingly, the name Scarlott was derived from the Old French word "escarlet," meaning "scarlet," and indicating one of the bright colors in which the bearer dealt.

Scarlott Early Origins



The surname Scarlott was first found in Essex, where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy. Undoubtedly, one of the most famous records of the the name was Will Scarlet, (Scarlett, Scarlock, Scadlock, Scatheloke, and Scathelocke) a prominent member of Robin Hood's Merry Men who first appeared in the oldest surviving Robin Hood ballad, A Gest of Robyn Hode, printed between 1492 and 1534.
