The Boernicians, along with the Strathclyde Britons, were one of the ancient tribes of the Scottish/English Borderlands. These tribes were made up of the clans from which so many Scottish names are derived. The surname denotes one who came from Scotland, as in 'the Scot.' The double 't' in Scott is now the most common rendition of this name. The Scotts lived in Roxburgh (now part of the region of Borders), Scotland.
