Name Meaning

English: habitational name from any of several places called Walcott, Walcot, or Walcote, for example in Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Norfolk, Oxfordshire, and Wiltshire, all named in Old English walh ‘foreigner, Briton, serf’ (genitive plural wala) + cot ‘cottage, hut, shelter’ (plural cotu), i.e. ‘the cottage where the (Welsh-speaking) Britons lived’. This name is also frequent in Barbados and Jamaica, when emancipated slaves adopted it from the name of one or other of the sugar plantations owned there by English families called Walcott.

History: This surname was in MA from an early date. William Walcott emigrated from England to Salem, MA, in 1637; John Wolcott (1632–1690) is recorded in Springfield, MA.
