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.
Early Origins of the Stote family
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
