~Scott~

Scott as described in the Oxford A Dictionary of English Surnames has this to say about the Surname Scott. Scott is one of the twelve most commonest surnames in Scotland, a border name, from OE Scott, originally an Irishman, later a Gael from Scotland. In English border counties where the surname is also common the name means 'a man from Scotland' not necessarily a Gael. The surname may also derive from a personal-name, OE Scott. According to Guppy, Scott is well-established in the eastern counties whilst the Scutts of Dorset are as numerous as the Scotts of Devonshire or Yorkshire. The 12th-century Scots of eastern England may well have been retainers of David I. King of Scotland, who succeeded to the extensive lands of Waltheof, Earl of Huntingdon, on his marriage to Waltheof's daughter. Many of these must have remained in England and their surnames became hereditary for in the 1327 Subsidy Roll for Suffolk there are 35 men called Skot. Some may have been retainers of Scottish nobles who accepted Edward 1's over lordship and fought against Bruce.  Other variants of the name spelling for Scott are; Scotts, Scutt, Scutts.

 

My Scott family lived in Stockbridge, Ingham County, Michigan. Amanda Phebe Scott married Charles Edward Woolverton November 20, 1883. Charles Woolverton is the focus of much of my research as he was adopted by Samuel Wolverton, after the remarriage of his mother Mary Worton Shearman Wolverton, lost her first husband ? Shearman and later married Samuel Wolverton. Charles Wolverton (Shearman) is my great, great grandfather, he married Amanda Phebe Scott, and Charles's adoptive father mother's name was also Phoebe Scott Wolverton, it is not known if Amanda Phebe Scott who spelling of Phebe is different then that of Phoebe Scott are a relative of one another or not. But it is certainly a interesting twist in the saga of trying to find who Charles Wolverton's father ? Shearman is?
