Waggott Early Origins



The surname Waggott was first found in Lincolnshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor in that shire. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1273 when both Henry and Ralph Waket held estates and were shown on tax rolls.

The Great Migration



Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Waggott, or a variant listed above: Thomas Wagget who set sail for Virginia on the "Thomas and John" in 1635; Edward Waggett, who arrived in Virginia in 1635; Thomas Waggatt arrived in Virginia in 1639.
