When Margaret Scott was born on 5 April 1812, her father, John Scott, was 28 and her mother, Isabella Fleming, was 30. She had at least 3 sons and 6 daughters with William Hall. She lived in Bedlington, Durham, England, United Kingdom in 1841 and Northumberland, England, United Kingdom in 1851.
English, Scottish, and Irish (Down): habitational and ethnic name from Middle English Scot ‘man from Scotland’. There is no evidence that the surname denoted either of the earlier senses of Scot as ‘(Gaelic-speaking) Irishman’ or ‘man from Alba’, the Gaelic-speaking region of Scotland north of the river Forth. This surname is also very common among African Americans.
English and Scottish: from the rare Middle English personal name Scot (Old English Scott, possibly also Old Norse Skotr), only certainly attested in northern England.
English: variant of Scutt .
