SCOTT FAMILY NAME RESEARCH



The object of this research is to investigate the various Scott Families in Virginia and surrounding states, and their descendants, in an attempt to find the origins of our ancestor, John Scott [F137], who is said to have been born in Virginia.

INDEX:


VIRGINIA FOUNDERS


The Virginia Scott family is said to originate with the Reverend John Scott [F1].

Another possibility is John SCOTT [F159] of Clifton, Virginia. He is said to be one of three brothers who came over from England or Scotland. One of those brothers apparently was Thomas SCOTT [F209]. They are said to be descendants of James SCOTT [F210] of Aberdeen, Scotland.

Other than from Scotland, the surname Scot or Scott was well established in East Anglia, England at an early date. There were, for example 35 persons called Scot in the Suffolk subsidy rolls for 1327, and in the Suffolk returns of 1523 there are at least 16 Scots. The surname may indicate Scots descent, or it may be a nickname.
