The Wolcott/Walcott/Wilcott DNA project has found that descendants of Emmanuel Walcott of Buckinghamshire (c.1570-c.1650) and Thomas Walcot of Hampshire (c.1680-1722) share somewhat similar DNA. There is also some similarity between these two Walcott participants and the descendants of William Walcott who immigrated to Salem MA in 1638. All show a Nordic origin, unlike the Walcots of Shropshire who have Celtic DNA, or the Wolcotts of Devon and Somerset, who have Anglo-Saxon genetic origins. The matches are not close enough to assume a common ancestor, nor far enough apart to preclude one. Additional participants from English Walcott families are encouraged to participate in the DNA project to confirm and expand the knowlege of these families' relationships.

The Walcotts of Eastern England probably descend from Danish invaders that settled in Eastern England in the 10th century. They took their surname from one or more of several settlements named Walcott. Walcot in the counties of Lincolnshire and Wiltshire, Walcott in Norfolk, and Walcote in Leicestershire and Warwickshireshire, were all listed in the 11th century Domesday records.
The Walcotes of Norfolk, the de Walcotes of Lincolnshire, and the Walcotes of Leicestershire, all seem to have died out in the male lines by 1400. Lincolnshire Walcots disappear in the 17th century. Some Walcotts living today appear to descend from Edmund Walcott, born about 1460 in Buckinghamshire. His ancestors are unknown, but may have been the Walcotts of Leicestershire.

Revised December 2013
This family used "de Walcote" as a surname, derived from the village of Walcott, part of the manor of Little Snoring, located near the ocean on the north coast of Norfolk. In 1199 Thomas de Walcot was living at Walcot, but it is not known if he was related to the following Walcotes. Their coat-of-arms, an inescutcheon within an orle of martlets, is recorded in the Norfolk and Suffolk Roll of Arms, c.1400. As far as we have been able to find, the de Walcotes of Norfolk died out about 1400 and have no known descendants.
Information about the Norfolk Walcotts is partially from Bloomfield's "An Essay Towards a Topographical History of Norfolk", 1808; Walter Wye's, "Some Rough Materials for a History of the Hundred of North Erpingham", 1883, and "Norfolk Families", 1913; internet files, and the files of John B.

II. WALCOTES OF YORKSHIRE
Revised December 2011
This family used "de Walcote" as a surname, but it is uncertain if it has any connection to a Walcott place name. Information about this family is primarily from the History of Barwick-in-Elmet, published by the Thoresby Society, various internet sources, and the records of John Wolcott. This family seems to have died out in the 1300s.
(1) Robert de Walcote, b. c.1180, is the first Yorkshire Walcote for which there is documentary evidence. About 1240 Robert de Walcote was granted property at Lasingcroft and Shippen, in the manor of Scholes, Yorkshire, by Roger de Quincy (c.1195-1264), Earl of Winchester. This grant was again confirmed in 1253 when Scholes was deeded to the Lacy family. Robert de Walcote granted property to his nephew, Robert de Walcote, son of his brother, John de Walcote; m. Eva ____.

(3) Geoffrey de Walcote, b. c. 1220- c.1262; in a case against William de Lasingcroft it was stated that the property in question had belonged to Robert de Walcot who died without "heirs of himself" in the reign of King Henry III (1216-1272), which property went to his brother Richard and to Richard's son, William, and then to Geoffrey, son of William.
(4) Alice de Walcote, b. c.1240; m. William de Baroby, called William de Lasingcroft after obtaining, through marriage to Alice and the gift of her sister, the Walcot property in Lasingcroft, and is sometimes referred to as "William the elder".

III. THE WALCOTES OF LEICESTERSHIRE
Revised November 2017
This family derives its surname from the village of Walcote in the parish of Misterton, Leicestershire, located near the town of Luttersworth, near the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire borders. Walcote is listed in the Domesday Book as four carucates of land subject to Danegeld. It was held from the Crown by the Verdun family of Alveton, Staffordshire from c.1100 to 1316.
(1?) Richard de Walecote, c.1220; witnessed a deed at Misterton in 1263.
(2?) William de Walcote, c.1245. In 1273 William held from Theodore de Verdun of Alvaston, one toft at Luttersworth and the advowson of the church of Lutterworth for the life of Eleanore Verdun. William de Walcote in Lutterworth and others witnessed a deed conveyng land at Pulteney, Leicestershire, to John Owyn. Pultney is in Misterton, adjascent to Walcote.
(2) Robert de Walcote. c.1245-. In 1276 Robert de Walcote held 2 virgates, approx. 50 acres, in Walcote. Robert de Walcote, or perhaps his son, was paid 3 shillings from the account of the mayor of Leicester in 1300.
(3) Richard de Walcote, MP, c.1270-c.1350. Richard de Walcote was paid 6 shillings from the account of the mayor of Leicester in 1300.

In 1324 Richard de Walcote was appointed auditor of the accounts of the mayor of Worcester. He was mentioned numerous times as taxpayer, auditor, burgess, member of the merchant's guild, and juror at Leicester, 1324-1346. He represented the city of Leicester in the parliaments of 1339, 1340, and 1346. Richard de Walcote was at Lutterworth in 1348.
(3) Ralph de Walcote, MP, c.1280-1318, draper and cloth merchant; admitted freeman of London 1310, elected to represent London at the parliament held at Lincoln in 1310. In 1315, Ralph de Walcote, going beyond the seas, has letters appointing Simon de Swanelond and John de Horneby his attorneys until Christmas. His wool, valued at 120 pounds, was on a ship captured by the French in 1316. In 1318 he and others sent a ship to Antwerp that was captured by the French. His will proved at London 1318 conveyed a house and land in St. Lawrence Candlewick Street, London, to Robert Lovett of Liscombe, Buckinghamshire, and Thomas his son, and to son John 20 pounds to be given to a charity if John died before age 21.

NOTE: Robert Lovett acquired Liscombe Manor in the parish of Soulbury, Buckinghamshire by marriage to Sarah de Turville in 1304. He must have been a relative or close family friend because Richard de Walcote of Luttersworth witnessed a deed for him in 1309, he appointed Hugh de Walcote as rector of Soulbury in 1313, and he was the primary legatee in 1318 of the will of Ralph de Walcote, above, possibly as trustee for Ralph's son.

In his will of 1349 he established a chantry chapel in the church of St. Lawrence Candlewick Street where a daily mass was to be said for the souls of him and his family and for his mother-in-law, and Ralphe de Walcote, and the archbishop of Canterbury. Ralph de Walcote may have been his mentor and sponsor.
(4? ) John de Walcote, c.1300, mentioned in above 1318 will of Ralph de Walcote as under age 21. In an undated deed John son of Ralph de Walcote sold to Hugh Scott 2 1/2 acres in the field of Southorpe in Barnack, Northants., on the road to Sutton.
(5) John Walcott, b. c.1334; merchant and draper. John Walkot was apprenticed to Thomas Chalkton, mercer, of London, in 1350. Most mercer apprenticeships began at age 16 and lasted about 10 years, so this one probably ended about 1360. In a will dated 1361 John Walcote was the principal heir of John Boteler, draper, who left to John de Walcote various household goods, a brewery called " le Dragon" in Douuegate, parish of S. Mary de Bothawe ; a tenement called "le Catfethell " in the parish of S. Benedict Shorhogg, and another tenement opposite the church of S. Pancras. The tavern called "Le Dragon" is shown on a Cartulary of Holy Trinity, Aldgate on a list of those paying quit rent in the parish of St. Benet Sherehog. as John Boteler, 1356; John Walkote, 1364 and 1384; his widow until 1413.

In 1371 he was living in Candlewick Street and in 1373 he was a merchant, draper and citizen of London. In 1374 he was a Collector for Candlewick Street, which he represented as Alderman for Candlewick Ward in 1377,1382-3, 1384, 1387-8, 1392-4, 1395-9. and 1399.

A hearing regarding a tenement in All Hallows Breadstreet parish said that he left the property to his wife Christina for life and then to be sold. The widow with Bertram Walcote and Thomas Bricet, the other executors deeded land in 1412 to Walter Gawtron and his wife, Joan, John's former ward but sometimes described as his daughter. Joan married Walter King, a London grocerr, and (2) Walter Gawtron, MP. An Act of Parliament in 1447 authorized the distribution of his chaitable bequests valued at 7,000 marks in the hands of the Executors of Walcote.
John is sometimes said to have used the same arms as Sir John Walcot of Leicester, a silver shield with a blue cross patonce and five gold fleur-de-lis, but quartered with a silver shield with a black fess with three silver scallops.
(3) Geoffrey de Walcote, c. 1275-1340. Geoffrey de Alveton, son of Robert de Walcote, was granted land at Shippen by his father.

Henry was then appointed guardian of Isabella's son, Edward III. In 1329 the sheriff was ordered to restore lands, goods and chattels taken from Geoffrey de Walcott of Leicester for tresspass, excess, or disobedience, and in that year Geoffrey de Walcote, yeoman, accompanied Henry, Earl of Leicester and Lancastershire overseas. In 1348, William de Wykyngston, parson of Lutterworth, complained that William, son of Geoffrey de Walcote of Lutterworth, Nicholas and Richard his brothers, Agnes late wife of Geoffrey de Walcote, and others, broke into his house at Lutterworth, assaulted his men, and carried off his goods.

(4) Thomas de Walcote, c. 1305-c.1380. Thomas co-signed in 1360 with his brother Nicholas for the balance of the debt owed the king by their brother, William de Walcote. Perhaps the Thomas de Walcote who was granted a messuage at Snarkeston, Leicestershire, by John Charnels in 1379.
(5) Sir John de Walcote, c. 1340-1407. John de Walcott married Elizabeth, daughter and sole heiress of Sir John Walleis, Sheriff of Leicester and Nottingham, about 1363, by which marriage he held the manor and 27 virgates of land in Swithland, Leicester. In 1378, John, son of Thomas Walkote of Lutterworth sold for 20 marks of silver his right to two tenements, two virgates of land, and 4 acres of meadow in Walcote by Misterton. He was the last to hold the land called Walcott from which the family derived their name.
Froissant's Chronicles records that in 1380, "messire Jean Wallecok" and several other men were knighted on the field before the walls of Troyes, by Thomas of Woodstock, Earl of Buckingham, commander of the English army. The Surrey Roll of Arms dating from shortly after 1380, lists the arms of Sir John de Walcote: on a cross patonce azure 5 fleur-de-lis or, five gold fleur de lis on a blue cross with divided ends. Thomas of Woodstock was the leader of powerful nobles whose ambition to wrest power from Thomas' nephew, King Richard II of England, culminated in a successful rebellion in 1388, which significantly weakened the king's power. Richard II managed to overcom these lords in 1397, and Thomas of Woodstock was imprisoned in Calais to await trial for treason. These events affected John de Walcott. In a 1389, petition of John Walcote knight put in exigents (for immediate attention) in Leicestershire. In 1390 Sir John Walcott was sent to the Tower of London. He was later transferred to the Marshalsea Prison for 3 more years. The Tower was generally reserved for political prisoners, so John must have followed Thomas of Woodstock's opposition to King Richard II. In 1399, Thomas of Woodstock's brother, Henry, deposed Richard II and assumed the crown as Henry IV.
After his release from prison he lived on his properties at Misterton until his death about 1405, whereupon his widow married William Bispham, MP and royal commissioner. Swithland was inherited by his daughters and co-heiresses, Alice and Margaret Walcott. A deed, dated 1424, and indorsed "Deed of Partition of the Manor of Swithland, between Margaret and Alice, the daughters and co-heirs of Elizabeth Walcotte" settled the division

(6) Margaret Walcott,b. c.1395; m. (1) John Danvers c.1422, m. (2) Thomas Ashton 1426.
(2) Philip de Walcote, c. 1250-1311, probably brother of William and Robert. He and Robert's son, Ralph, were London drapers. Philip de Walcote; draper and merchant of London "now deceased" in 1311 had debts owing to him of 315 pounds by John Armaund of Buckingham , and 60 pounds by John Quentyn of Newport, Essex.
(3) Philip de Walcote, c.1280-1347. Philip and wife Eleanore were deeded land at Fulham, Braynford, and Yelling, Middlesex, in 1311 by John Quentyn, who leased all or part it back to John in 1312 and 1332, and to others in 1332 and 1337. In 1340 Thomas de Quenton of Newport filed a claim against Philip de Walcote and Alice his wife regarding these lands, saying the John de Quentyn had granted him 4 marks rent for life from these lands. In the hearing it was said that John Quentyn owed money to William Sparks who was given the land until the debt was repaid and William granted it to Thomas de Quentyn and Philip de Walcote, and John de Quentyn then granted his right to the land to Philip de Walcote and his then wife, Eleanore. In 1347 Roger de Costynoble deeded to Robert de Norwich lands held by Philip de Walcote and Alice his wife in Fulham, Brainford, and Yilling, and Thomas de Walcote, son of Philip de Walcote, put in his claim to them.
(4) Thomas de Walcote, c. 1310, filed claim to property of Philip de Walcote, above; inherited from his mother, Eleanore Nicole, property in Candlewick Street, London.
(4) Robert de Walcote, c. 1315-1369, goldsmith of London, filed claim in 1349 against Henry Spark and others saying he was deprived of property in parish of St. Lawrence Candlestick, als. St. Lawrence Poutney, which he entered as brother and heir of Thomas de Walcote who inherited as son of Eleanore, daughter and heiress of John Nicole; Robert won the suit and Spark was assessed 100 shillings. The will of Robert de Walcote filed in 1361 leaves bequests to Isabella de Preston, Master William de Preston, Margaret Leycester, John de Leycestre, leaving his tenements in St. Lawrence Poulteney to wife Alice and Isabella de Preston for life and then to charity. John de Leycestre, Robert de Norwich, and Katherine his wife claimed the tenements. In 1369 Henry Spark again claimed the property against John Leycestre, kinsman and heir of Robert de Walcote. Henry Spark died in 1388.
William Spark of Writtle obtained a messuage and 231 acres at Clayhall in the manor of Barking, Essex, in 1318, and conveyed to his son Robert Spark and wife Joan in 1330. In 1392 Robert Archer and Robert Newport and Ralph Chamberlain conveyed the same property, held for life by Joan, widow of Henry Spark, to John Walcote, William Oliver, and John Leycestre of London.
IV. WALCOTS OF LINCOLNSHIRE
Revised July 2013
Information about this family is from Lincolnshire Pedigrees by Arthur S. Larken, 1904, The Walcott Book by Arthur Stuart Walcott, 1925, the 1618 Visitation of Rutland, the 1666 Visitation of Lincolnshire, the International Genealogical Index, and the files of John B. Wolcott. Those persons named in the Visitation and Lincolnshire Pedigrees are in italics,
The Walcotts of Lincolnshire derive their surname from the village of Walcot, now called Walcot by Folkingham. It lies one mile north of Folkingham. The village of Walecote was mentioned in Domesday. The original surname was "de Walcote", but later, "Walcot" and sometimes "Walcott", and now Walcot. Walcot was part of the manor of Neuton, or Newton, in the Wapentake of Aveland. Aveland included 23 villages, including Bourne, Dunsby, Folkingham, Hacconby, Haceby, Newton, Swaton, Witham, and Walcot, all mentioned below. A different property, called Walcot by Billinghay, is about 14 miles to the northeast.
The family has not be traced beyond the mid-1600s.
(1) Nicholas de Walcote is the only Walcot on a 1273 Subsidy Roll for Lincolnshire. There is nothing to indicate that he was related to the family below. At this time surnames were only beginning to be used, and "de Walcote" may only indicate that he came from the property called Walcot.
(2?) Hugh de Walcote, c.1260, mentioned in a deed of 1329, below, was taxed 2 shillings on the 1332 Lay Subsidy at Baston, Lincolnshire. Baston was a small parish near the market town of Bourne, 10 miles south of Walcot by Folkingham. He is named with Henry, Abbot of Croyland and others of Croyland and Baston in a hearing of 1342 regarding breaching of a dyke at Depyng, Lincolnshire.
(3) Richard de Walcote, b. c.1285, d. c.1350 Southorp, Lincolnshire. In 1339, Richard de Walcote held 5 strips of land at Walcot and Alexander de Walcote held 1 strip; the heir of Richard de Walcote being certified in the 26th year of Edward III (1352) on the decease of John, Earl of Kent to hold a fourth part of one knight's fee in Southorpe.
(3) Alexander de Walcote, c. 1285-c.1350; Alexander, son of Hugh de Walcote, named in a hearing of 1310; in 1322 William de Mortyn, lord of Dunsby, released his claims for himself and his heirs to land and tenements at Dunsby that his father, Roger de Mortyn, had previously granted to Alexander de Walcote. Dunsby is five miles south of Walcot by Folkingham. In 1329, Robert de la Hay of Wigtoft granted to Alexander son of Hugo de Walcote, and to Margaret his wife and their heirs, 10 acres of land at Dunsby and Hacconby and meadow in Northdeyl as capital demesne. The 1332 Lincolnshire Lay Subsidy lists "Alexander Filius Hugonis" paying the largest tax at Walcot, 13s 6d. Alexander held land called Threckinghamgate at Walcot in 1339. In 1353 a messuage lying east of the village of Dunsby is said to lie next to the tenement once of Alexander de Walcot.
(4) John de Walcote, of Walcot, c.1310-: Collector of manorial dues for Langtoft and Baston, Lincolnshire, for the Abbot of Croyland, lord of the manor. In 1337 and 1339 he distrained the vicar of Baston. The years 1348-1350 was the time that the Black Death swept England. John de Walcote was lord of the manor of Walcot in right of his wife in 1353 when he brought suit against William de Walcote for pasture and compost rights due the lord of the manor.
(5) John Walcote, Jr., of Dunsby, c.1350-1397. John Walcote of Dunsby and wife, Margaret, and Robert de Sutton and wife, Joan, probably Margaret's sister, quitclaimed lands called Surflet and Gosberkirke to Rober Capon and Richard Curlew for 20 marks silver. In 1397 the Bishop of Lincoln granted to Robert Palmer the wardship of John, son of John Walcote of Dunsby during his minority following the death of his father. A deed of 1442 grants rents to Hugh Willoughby and others from lands at Dunsby lying between the holdings of John Walcote on the west and John Aston on the east." The rents include that of lands and tenements at Dunsby "which were Margaret's, lately wife of John Walcote of Dunsby which Hugo Wyllughby bought from the said John".
(6) John Walcote of Walcot, c.1385-c.1430; a minor in 1397. John Walkote of Walcote was a witness to a deed at Haceby in 1408. In 1409, John Walcote of Walcot, esq. witnessed a quitclaim by Thomas Boston to land in the manor of Newton, including Haceby and Walcot. In 1420 Edmond Willoughby of Dunsby leased his mill at Dunsby to John Walcote of Dunsby and others. In 1430 Robert de Boston granted to John Walcote of Walcot the manor of Newton, with lands in Newton, Threckingham, Haceby, Osbournby and Walcot, with William Walcote of Walcot as one of the five witnesses. John's wife was probably the Joan, late wife of John Walcote of Dunsby, Lincoln, who in 1430 deeded to Thomas Duffield of Dunsby and Margaret his wife, property John had inherited from Alexander Walcote, and if the Duffields had no heirs of their bodies it was to revert to the heirs of Alexander Walcote.

In 1442 William Walcote is listed as Comissioner of the Peace for Kesteved, Lincolnshire, succeeded by Richard Walcote in 1444.

Richard Walcote filed suit 1460-1465 regarding the Manor of Kirton which he bought from the Executors of Sir Hugh Wytham. Richard and Thomas de Walcote were witnesses to a deed concerning the Manor of Haceby in 1449. Haceby, like Walcot, is in the manor of Neuton.

V . WALCOTTS OF BUCKINGHAMSHIRE, HAMPSHIRE, LONDON, AND BARBADOS
Information about this Walcott family is from the Buckingham Record Society, the International Genealogical Index, documents copied by Richard I. Walcott of Wellington, New Zealand, and by Penny Daish, various internet records, and the files of John B. Wolcott. The family may have descended from one of the preceeding families as surnames were adopted much earlier than their earliest known ancestor, Edmund, below. They appear to be the ancestors of most Walcotts living today.
In 1522 there was a muster taken of men 16 years and older, and the value of their goods or property. Six Walcotts were recorded in Buckinghamshire. They were: Thomas Walcote of Water Stratford 22L; Edm. Walcote of Foxcote 6L, John Walcote of Stoney Stratford 4L/4s; Ric. Walcote of Dadford 4L; Wm. Walcote of Water Stratford 2L; and John Walcote of Foxcote 1L. Two years later, in 1524, a Lay Subsudy to fund the War with France was collected. Two Walcotts appear on it; Thomas Walcott of Water Stratford with property valued at 14L, and Richard Walcote of Dadford with 4 marks in land. We are assuming that Edmund, an adult in 1492, was the father and the others his children, althought this is uncertain.
(1) Edmund Walcott, c.1455-c.1523, was the earliest Walcott now known to be living in Buckinghamshire. Edmund Walcote administered the wills of William and Alice Paron in 1492 and the will of Richard Lucas of Foscott in 1521. He was on the 1522 muster roll as Edm. Walcote of Foxcote (Foscott) with 6L in goods. His name is missing from the 1524 subsidy roll, probably due to his death. Foscott was a manor and is a hamlet 2 miles northeast of Buckingham. Also at Foscott in 1522 was John Walcote.
(2) Thomas Walcott, c.1480-1536, appears on the 1522 muster roll at Water Stratford with 22L in goods, and on the 1524 Lay Subsidy with 14L in goods. Water Stratford is in northwest Buckinghamshire, about 5 miles west of the city of Buckingham. He was probably the eldest son of Edmund. In 1522 he was executor of the will of Robert Skylman of Water Stratford. The will of Thomas Walcote of Water Stratford, Bucks., husbandman, was proved in 1536. It mentions his children Richard, Elaine, and Nicholas, and was witnessed by John Walcote and others.
(3) John Walcott, c.1500-1571; probably the John Walcot who was at Foscott in 1522. John was church warden at Water Stratford in 1553. John Whalkatt was at Water Stratford in 1571. His wife was probably Alice Walcot of Foscott, widow, whose will dated 1579, leaves bequests to children Joan, Richard and Marian, with the residue to sons John and James who she names as executors.
