Name Meaning

English (Staffordshire): variant of Darracott, a habitational name from one or other of several places originally named Dod(d)ecote (‘Dodda's cottage’ from the Old English personal name Dodda + Old English cot), with post-medieval development of intervocalic d to r and unrounding of o to a. The Devon surname is from either of two places called Darracott in Georgeham and Welcombe (both in Devon), or from Higher Darracott in Great Torrington (Devon). All of them are earlier recorded as Doddecote. The Staffordshire surname is probably from Dodcott in Audlem (Cheshire), which lies nine miles west of Aston (Staffordshire). The Shropshire surname may alternatively derive from Dodecote Grange, in Child's Ercall (Shropshire), but no evidence has been found for a medieval surname referring to this place.
