An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The Stote surname is generally thought to derive from the Middle English word "stott," meaning a "steer," or "bull." As such it was likely originally an occupational name for a cattleman, or perhaps a nickname. Some instances of the name are thought to have come from the Viking name Stoti, which likely arrived with the 9th century Norse colonization of Northern England, and Scotland.

Stote Early Origins



The surname Stote was first found in Yorkshire, where Gamell Stot was the first listed on the Pipe Rolls of 1166. Over one hundred years later, John Stotte was listed in the Subsidy Rolls of Sussex in 1296. A few years later Elena la Stott was listed in the Colchester Rolls of 1312. This latter reference of great interest as women were rarely listed in any rolls until hundreds of years later.
