About the study
My study of the Coult surname started in Essex, England where one of my ancestors lived before emigrating to the United States about 1855. I have data on that family in the western United States and Essex, and Devon in England. In the process of searching various historical records I have gathered details on many individuals and families with the name of Coult.
Distribution of the name
Census and civil registration data indicate that the name is most often found in Essex and Yorkshire. This is based on records from 1837 to 1900. There are indications from earlier records that the Coult name may have been concentrated in Norfolk and Suffolk more than Essex before 1800.
