Woppercott Early Origins



The surname Woppercott was first found in Surrey where the family historian claims they have held a family seat from the times of King Alfred, (890 A.D.,) the great Saxon King, who granted Reginald Wapshott, his armour bearer, the lands known as Almners Barns near Chertsey in that shire. This would make Wapshott one of the oldest recorded names in English history. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

The Great Migration



Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Woppercott or a variant listed above: Jane Wapshatt who settled in Virginia in 1652; Jane Wapshott settled in Barbados in 1674; James Wapshott landed in New York in 1774.
