Early Origins of the Skattergood family
The surname Skattergood was first found in Yorkshire
where they held a family seat
as Lords of the Manor. The family name was first referenced in the year 1219 when Henry Skattergot held estates in that shire. The popular notion that this name means a spendthrift is pure fantasy.
The name descends from the Anglo Saxon pre Conquest Ceaddagod, to Shadgod, to Scattergod, to Scattergood and even Scattersett.
Scattergood Baines is a 1941 American comedy-drama film that was based on a novel by Clarence Budington Kelland. The sequel Scattergood Pulls the Strings is another American comedy film produced the same year. A radio version of the character Scattergood was popular during the days of live radio.
